Neil Gaimon Quote & Shots of Awe Vid

For the past couple of years, I've begun the new year posting this quote from Neil Gaimon which, obviously, I particularly love.

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
          _Neil Gaiman

Charlie & Snoopy Practice Gratitude, Learn To Say Thank You
From YouTube:
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others
         - Marcus Tullius Cicero
As YouTube puts it Shots of Awe host...'Jason Silva...freestyles complex systems of society, technology and human existence and discusses the truth and beauty of science in a form of existential jazz'
          Most of his vids work for me, some few don't.This one in particular, seems a great message for the beginning of the new year.

Love that vid! I really like his vids in general, but this one really points out what I think every single day.

Sometimes he goes in a direction where I really can't follow. But in the main, I always feel lifed somehow after watching his vids. He's so passionate.

He is, that's one of the things I like. And I agree, being grateful is so important, and most people whine and whinge about situations they put themselves into. And they forget we have all the conveniences we do, overflowing supermarkets, health and dental care, clean water coming out of a tap, no war, famine or rampant disease in our country, etc., etc.; even a machine washes our clothes or makes our coffee. No, it's whine, whine, whine, blind to the fact that, looking at history and the rest of the world today, we won the fucking cosmic jackpot. What are the chances of that? Reason enough to be grateful every single day, IMO.
