To Dream On and Dream Big…

No reminiscence, no resolutions, just looking forward, dreaming big, and thankful. Thankful to the people I’ve connected with so far; the ones who contributed to helping me create good work; the ones who were at my back and remain there; the ones I look forward to working with this year.

And as I knuckle down to push ahead, this will be my self-penned mantra…

Be where your soul needs to be, and whether light or shade, cherish the experiences that have made you richer, wiser, stronger. Take what you have learned, sprinkle it with hope to dream on and dream big.

Here’s to a magical, peaceful and creative New Year for all of us.
