this was a good week

This was a good week!  Here's why:

•  Mismatched socks, I bought way too many sparklers for a project, and today's Alex's last day of school for 2015 -- it's a great week!

•  I kinda dig being terrified -- and these life-sized dolls that are haunting the London Tube do the trick.  There goes a good night's sleep for a solid week, man.

•  I love the idea of spending the winter months hugging hygge.  Who's with me?

•  These images of Canada welcoming refugees.  I love love.

•  And speaking of love, how about this video of Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp signing Paul McCartney's songMy Valentine?  SO. INCREDIBLY. BEAUTIFUL.

•  And speaking about more love, Jenny's making Christmas miracles happen again.

•  And speaking of Christmas, I'm planning on taking the next two weeks off, more or less -- time to enjoy some concentrated down time.  Hope the rest of your year is full of peace, and joy, and connection, wonderful people.
