You are the artist, and your days the canvas. Will you create an original masterpiece, or live a paint-by-numbers kind of life? John Mark Green

Travel Pimp took a little bit of time off in December to allow our SEO to do some under the hood hypertuning – vroom, vroom. Now that this is complete, I’d like to welcome the New Year with a few words, fortified with wisdom from smarter warrior poets (please pause for the short, introspective gaze out the window), followed by some typical superfluity.

First, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for an amazing 2018. According to Google metrics, we have gone from a small handful of readers to nearly fifteen thousand new readers per month this year. For this, let me recognize my friends; old and new.

Second, let me wish you all a new year filled with adventure and possibility – and, as a fellow traveler, one of appreciation, kindness, and enlightenment.

Third, a reminder from one of my favorite authors, Tom Robbins, who said “Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.” “You should never hesitate to trade your cow for a handful of magic beans.”

And with those masterful words, let me wish you all the best while I finger paint my 2019 masterpiece.
