Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our readers, contributors and people who have never heard of us before. If you are lucky enough to spend this time with your family and friends then all the better. From both Ryan O’Grady and myself I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and we will see you all in 2012.
If I can impart a little wisdom nugget on us all in 2012 it would be to live a little, we now live in a world where we are overloaded with information, be it political, ideological or otherwise and sometimes we get so wrapped up in the luminously mundane we lose sight of the fact we are only here for a short time – so let’s all live a little!
Have a lived life instead of a career, put yourself in the safe keeping of good taste, lived freedom will compensate you for a few losses, if you don’t like the style of others – cultivate your own, get to know the tricks of reproduction, be a self publisher even in conversation and then the joy of working can fill your days, may it be so with you and may you keep your powder dry for the battles ahead and know when and how to recognize them.
