#fmsphotoaday January, Day 4: The View From Here 

#fmsphotoaday January, Day 4: The View From Here 

It’s a New Year and with it comes a fresh opportunity to shape our world.

So this is my wish, a wish for me as much as it is a wish for you: in the world to come, let us be brave – let us walk into the dark without fear, and step into the unknown with smiles on our faces, even if we’re faking them.

And whatever happens to us, whatever we make, whatever we learn, let us take joy in it. We can find joy in the world if it’s joy we’re looking for, we can take joy in the act of creation.

So that is my wish for you, and for me. Bravery and joy.

#fmsphotoaday December, Day 30: Something That Made You Smile This Year — The kiddo goes nuts every time I sit down in a movie theatre. Interpreting this as future shared love of film. (Also, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, people. So good.)
