The sentiments expressed in my holiday card are the same that I wish for my readers.
” New York can destroy an individual, or it can fulfill him, depending on a good deal of luck…No one should come to New York to live unless he is willing to be lucky.” – E.B. White
While I stand at the intersection of ambition and drive waiting for luck to pull up to my bumper, I am reminded to take the time to smell the roses. I love the bright lights and fast pace of NYC, but the concrete jungle can take its toll.
For the New Year, I wish you the contentment of enjoying the simple things. For me, it is a weekend, newspaper in hand, snackies from Amy’s Bread and heading to my spot on the Hudson River Path. Reading the paper cover to cover, I tune out the city and slow down – if only for a couple of hours.
For 2013, may success and luck find you and may you retain your ability to smile at simple pleasures – like kids enjoying a snowball fight. I dare you to have fun!
Happy New Year!
