Not officially on sabbatical anymore, but still living the sabbatical life!

A quick note to let friends and family know that we're OK here in Brussels, but completely shocked and dismayed by what happened yesterday in Liege. Despite the tremendous fun and joy that we've had on our trip to date, I can't help thinking how ugliness and tragedy seems to follow us around like a dark cloud just lurking on the peripheries. First it was the Stanley Cup riots in Vancouver while we were there in June, then the Greek riots just days before our arrival in July, followed by the Norwegian massacre days before our arrival in late July. Now this.
I'm posting this picture of Grand Place in Brussels not to make light of what happened in Liege, but to show that there remains beauty and grace in this world.
