I had wanted to tell you on Friday about a new project we’re working on.
(It is NOT a baby.) (I know the way you think.)

But then there was an earthquake, and a tsunami, and I think it’s fair to say that there are more important things to talk about right now. I found out tonight that the mother of one of our friends lost her home, and that her village has been destroyed. It’s hard to talk, or think, about anything else. (Though I very much like Ruth Reichl’s thoughtful post on the topic.) I hope that, wherever you are, you and your loved ones are safe. And I hope that those of us who can will find a way to help. The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, whatever we can do.
