What are you up to this weekend? Alex and I are going to Roman’s for pasta tonight, and we’ll be taking a family walk to see holiday lights tomorrow. Also, here’s our holiday gift guide so far, if you need any suggestions. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…
Oooh, a great $12 gift.
The soulful 11-year-old princes of the Nutcracker. “I really like following rules,” Tenzin said in an interview, “and in ballet you can follow so many rules.” (NYT)
Bookmarking this can-to-table vegetarian dinner.
A dad and son passing notes.
The best table tennis shot of 2018. (Wow, worth watching.)
Excited to give Alex this artwork. (Our first date spot:)
Most important, real stories from the men, women and children traveling on the caravan. And how to help.
Plus, a reader comment:
Says Claire on why I run even though I dread it: “I’m a palliative medicine doctor, reading this while eating dinner after a nighttime run around Central Park. I had a million reasons to not run tonight: I have notes to finish, it’s late, I’m tired, I wake up early tomorrow. But I went, and running is so damn hard it forced my brain to finally shut up. Before I left the hospital, I said goodbye to my patient who will likely die before morning. And as I rounded the reservoir to see the city lights, I realized all (all!) I was thinking about was the steady rhythm of my breath and feet. And I felt so deeply grateful to be in this body that moves and feels.”
