Like all of you, my joy in the holiday season has been tempered by the profound sadness of last Friday's tragedy. My friend Maryam from the blog My Marrakesh posted the photo below on Facebook with the heartfelt observation that she has been finding comfort in random goodness.
Her photo inspired me to search the web for more acts of kindness.

And of course this.

I'm going off the grid until the new year. I'm going to work on my book, hug my family and possibly have an adventure or two. And then in 2013, join me back here and we'll do a whole lot of catching up.
Thank you all so much for another wonderful year at A Bloomsbury Life. Your wisdom, wit and endless curiosity have made this blog a place that I can't wait to get to in the morning. Your comments are always revelatory and your eagerness to be a part of the conversation humbles me. You are all SUCH an inspiration.
Most gratefully yours,
