A random assortment of delightful things:
A book of letters written by guilty rock thieves.
A music box that plays Erik Satie’s ‘Je Te Veux.’
A necklace with my new favorite word (from a shop that aims to give 10% of its profits to charity.)
A copy of The Federalist Papers.
Classic German Baking by Luisa Weiss.
some wonderful organizations to support:
The Equal Justice Initiative (this profile of Bryan Stevenson is one of the most powerful things I read in 2016)
The International Rescue Committee (I asked my family for a gift to the IRC, because the images of two little boys, one on a beach and one in an ambulance, are with me every day.)
