this was a good week


This was a good week! Here’s why:

All the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, today’s Alex’s last day of school for the year, and Marcus’ sister and her family arrive tonight to spend the holidays with us. It’s Christmastime, baby!

These amazing photos bringing the fables of the Republic of Congo to life. Absolutely magical.

• Speaking of photos, here’s a photo essay showing how people use their cell phones around the world. Fascinating.

This Barcelona mural turns into something entirely different at night.

• And speaking of murals, this man paints the homes of refugees from all over the world.

This performance by an inclusive dance company is breathtaking.

• And finally, for today’s soundtrack, the song Alex sings nonstop around this time of year — but instead of Mariah Carey, I prefer this version, performed by Olivia Olsen in Love Actually. Click here or the image below to listen.

Happy holidays, beautiful people. Here’s wishing you all the joy and peace possible in the holiday season, however you may celebrate, wherever you are.
