In somewhat of a ‘new’ tradition, Danny and I cruised up the California Coast again this New Years Eve for our second annual Sea of Dreams experience. And it’s all too fitting to us that Sea of Dreams resides in an San Francisco’s vast Ocean of Opportunity. A compact, efficient city – it hustles and bustles on par with Los Angeles and New York City, but with more pedestrians and more clouds. Sea of Dreams was a spectacle in itself, and you’ll get to hear about that soon enough – but what left me with an even bigger impression was a whisper at the end of the night. Departing from Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, we stumbled across a corner and into an older gentleman, roaming the streets with a secret and a smile. As we inched closer to pass him, he grinned “It’s the second half of the second decade of the second millennium.” We only marinated in that moment for a millisecond before Danny laughed back, “Day one, brother!”. A smile populated the man’s face as he walked away, and we stood there – staring at each other in amusement.
Whether it’s waking up on the right side of the bed, a fresh jolt of sunshine, or a new lease on life – every day has the potential to be your ‘Day Zero’, but the start of a New Year provides fertile ground for your passions. To kick things off the right way, I’ve found some quotes that speak to me – about following dreams, building desires, focusing on intentions and the pursuit of a better tomorrow.
