A few happy snaps from 2013, which is rapidly - very rapidly - coming to a close. I'll always remember it for being the year I sat on rooftops, hiked through tangled forests, jumped in rivers, felt simultaneously young and old. I also moved to a new apartment, took about a dozen road trips, and met my nephew, who's now nine months old. It's been a strange and surprising, eye-opening and mind-altering year. I've loved it.I'll be taking the next two weeks off from blogging while I'm here in LA with family, and while I celebrate the new year in New York. I'll be back with a new post January 6th - I'm looking forward to share new ideas for the coming year then! In the meantime, ten links for the interim:
-Scenes from Santa school.
-"The Joy (and Dread) of Keeping Diaries" - I loved this.
-Mimosas with pear nectar and thyme. (See also: sage champagne.)
-This picture, for cold days.
-This dress, always, for warm days.
-Bekka Palmer's Rules for Wandering.
-"50 of the Best Closing Lines in Music."
-My favorite POV post of the year, about finding magic in the everyday. (Here are the rest.)
-And a line from Rumi for the new year: Tear off the mask, your face is glorious.
I can't thank you enough for your support, your kind words, and for reading this year. I feel so lucky to have found such an engaging and inspiring community here, and I consider you all - whether we've met in person or not - cherished friends. Wishing you a joyful, peaceful, restful December. See you in the new year.
