Last year, I got the opportunity to see Neil Gaiman. He was doing a reading and book signing for the release of his book The Ocean at the End of the Lane. It was a great experience, he is as smart and funny as you would expect, but more so. I can’t begin to explain how amazing he is while at the same time seem like a normal everyday person. A few nights later my almost-niece, Andia, attended a similar event in LA, except she got the opportunity to meet him during a small reception before the event. She’s exceptional, so her special time with Mr. Gaiman was well deserved. I mean, the girl brought him homemade chocolates with book themed decorations. C’mon!
I saw this quote from him earlier this week and I couldn’t quite get it out of my head. It was so close to what I talked about last week that it just stuck with me. I can’t quite give up on being a grown up but I can surely follow the sage advice of someone who knows what he’s talking about.
Plus, I think I’ve already got insane covered so it’s all uphill from here, right?
