Not a lot of words today. Just a photo of my friend S. in one of her favorite holiday ornament stores. I stood by the door and tried not to knock anything over. Every square inch of space was in use to display artistic and one-of-a-kind pieces, many of them glass. Some were breathtaking, some were downright strange. Yesterday was another good wander with women. And now I am refusing to get dressed in outdoor clothes and instead plan to dive into the 2012 presidential campaign recap Double Down and ignore the world outside my door. In the living room, my husband and son are ornamenting the couches in front of the TV, both of them perfectly happy watching Giants football. The sky has turned brooding after a brilliantly clear morning that my son caught at brunch with a friend. "He's meeting a female friend?" I asked my husband. "What do you think?" he said. "It's brunch." That comment might say more about my husband than it does about who my son might be meeting. I didn't pry. I am learning.
