Pollyanna wishes you a Happy 2015

I can think of no better way to ring in the new year than to quote the new year wish of the always brilliant Neil Gaiman:

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

Pollyanna’s New Year

Hey, Anna-Liza here. My New Year’s plans include being Darlin’ K-less at midnight, as he has a fire gig up in the mountains and won’t make it back until after midnight, but that’s okay – it’s a great gig. And taking my kidlets to a pajama party with friends, where Darlin’ K will join us when he can with prudent driving. (Y’hear that, K? Prudent driving. It won’t hurt us at all if you’re half an hour later than you thought you’d be – the point is to get there in one piece. And that goes for everyone else on the road tonight).

But I digress. Speaking of which …

Did you know that January 1st is Lyda’s birthday? Yes it is. She’s going to be starting this year with some really significant changes, as you know if you’ve been reading our stuff. She’s had a rough 2009, and her personal year begins with the western world’s year, so maybe wish her a double Happy New Year, eh?

And to you, too. Everyone I know has had a rough 2009, except maybe my daughter who carried and gave birth to her daughter in 2009, you might just recall. So for all of us …

A very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year to you and yours, in every way possible. And may we all remember to love and take care of one another. Welcome, 2010!

Pollyanna Raises a Toast

Happy New Year from the mountains west of Colorado Springs! We’re up here with a group of friends, sledding (okay, that was earlier, in daylight), drinking sparkling cider and checking our astrological forecasts for 2009. Looks like we’re in for a really … interesting … year, y’all. Saturn is opposite Uranus and squares Pluto, and we all know what that means!

Okay, I know, we don’t. Trust me, it will be quite a shakeup as we all reexamine power, power structures, power sources, and our own relationships with them and integrity about how we use our own.

AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYDA!!!!

2009 is a pivotal year for Capicorns, girlfriend, continuing the major shifts of 2008. Anywhere you may have been living in opposition to your own principles? Clean it up, babe. You’re getting ready for the next phase of your life.

To quote VSH’s New Year’s toast, here’s to health, happiness, and the good friends and family to share them.
