Thanks, A Great Big World. Thanks, Ian and Chad.  I have a hard time believing it sometimes but it’s nice to sing to yourself really loudly when you’re having an especially bad night.

This is the new year. We are the voices.

It never occurred to me, when I heard this song eons ago, courtesy of youtube, that it would give me so much inspiration now, in 2013. Enough, even, that I changed the headline of my blog to it. Because if anything, this is a new year. And we are the voices. I think we should let ourselves be heard more. For me, it feels like I’m shouting at this big brick wall, neither heard, nor appreciated, but as a collective we, I think we can do a little better than that.

Thank you, A Great Big World, for giving people hope.
