My favorite part about this box of oranges, lemons, and grapefruits handpicked from my cousin's garden in Arizona--aside from the kindness of the gift--are the leaves and twigs still clinging to the fruit. Here are eight wishes that I hope will cling to you all year:
1) Take care of yourself
2) Give yourself time to grow
3) Seek simplicity
4) Reach for goodness
5) Contribute to a cause you believe can make a difference in the world. It will.
6) Honor the literary arts, the transformative power of storytelling is endless
8) Stay open to the lessons of love
