From a friend..

" I always keep my passport in my never know when you just might need to get away. Just for a few days...from a Thursday to a Tuesday or something...  Maybe one Thursday you may find yourself riding to JFK or Newark and looking for the long term parking."

" Just grab a toothbrush, take your credit card and some money and whatever else you need you can get over there."

new year, new beginning

Repost from last year, with slight modifications. As progress is always in constant motion..

 Here's to closing out a year of pitfalls and mishaps and unexpected joys and surprises.

 To pushing oneself to the limit and realizing that sometimes your best isn't always good enough.

 To discovering new and amazing people, sometimes buried within your own heart,

here's to finding multiple ways to irritate government officials in new jersey who are use to shoveling out bullshit in the hopes you will go away ( they didn't learn the lesson..I'm the penny that keeps turning up)

apply line above to those individuals in new york city, it sucks for them cause I live here.

here's to learning to be still and silent and listen...sometimes too much. You may not like what you hear but it's better than standing at the bottom of the hill with the snowball gaining momentum. I'm the loony one pushing it back up the slope, battered and bruised in the process.

Here's to discovering in surprising, humbling and sometimes frightening ways that you are on the right path though it may be twisted and unclear.

Here's to doing it all over again.

Hope everyone gets everything they want in the New Year. Good health, a chocolate bar or mega millions.

I'd settle for my book to ( finally) be done and an oatmeal cookie. Hope to have both :)
