I'll resume regularly scheduled posting soon, but for now I'd like to acknowledge the recent tragic and heartbreaking events in Connecticut. I was especially moved by this video with compassionate words from Emilie Parker's father. Emilie was one of the six year-old victims. In it, he describes her love of handmade letterwriting and cardmaking. We can only wonder where this passion might have taken Emilie in life. At dinner tonight Andrew was reminded of this passage from Italian poet Dante Alighieri, and it felt right.
