We are off today to visit my sister and her family in Jerusalem. It is Grace and Whit’s first trip out of the country, and an adventure for all of us. I plan to truly soak up our time there, which would already be holy simply because it’s my whole family together, but is made extraordinarily more so by our visit to the holiest place in the world.
We return on the 30th. I’m going to post one of my favorite posts from each month (other than August, which was my month of photos, and December, which feels too recent) for the remaining days of this year after the solstice. I’ll be back in January. It was a surprisingly emotional experience, this diving into my archives (diving into the wreck, you might say – and, indeed, the words are maps). It was not always easy to choose what I wanted to share as emblematic of a particular month.
Thank you for being here, for reading what I share. It means more to me than I can ever possibly express.
May you have a happy, hopeful, and holy rest of 2011, celebrating the close of the year with those you love.
