Getting Quiet. by Meg Keene And with that, I’m off. New Years is my favorite of all holidays because it’s the time of year I’m able to cultivate a sense of quiet. I write lists, I make goals, I start baby projects, I think. So we’re off for some frenetic and wonderful holiday celebrations, and then a long quiet week in San Francisco: taking walks, visiting museums, watching movies, being married. All that with a little bit of dreaming and doing. You all (every one of you, even the quiet ones) have meant the world to me this year. Take that Team Practical bravery with you into the holidays, when people *might* share an opinion or two about your plans. For me, it’s been such a huge year that I need to sit very still to process it. Maybe by January 4th I’ll have something more to say about it. Till then, I’m wishing you everything calm and everything bright. Love, Meg Picture: Me, home Meg Keene Founder & Editor-In-Chief Meg is the Founder and EIC of APW.
