My New Year’s Resolution is the same as ever: to remind myself, as and when appropriate, that we don’t always get what we deserve and, conversely, that what we get is not always what we deserve.
The recent tragedy in Connecticut is a reminder that Life is often far from fair.
But it works both ways! There are so many things that I enjoy that I have done absolutely nothing to deserve; so my resolution includes reminding myself to be grateful for them too.
Looking back at my New Year’s post from a year ago, it seems as if the economic outlook hasn’t improved at all. In fact, as I write, the US may be approaching a ‘fiscal cliff’ that would have negative reverberations around the globe. As an artist who has many American customers, this matters! But there’s not a lot that we as individuals can do about it. That being the case, I’ll just carry on as before, enjoying exploring the world of art and design and hoping that my designs will continue to spread a little enjoyment far and wide, just as they have in previous years.
