What a treat to read “The Panicked Person’s Holiday Gift Guide” (November/December). As I usually have most of my Christmas shopping done early, I found the guide more a catalog of adventures than of gifts. So many different alumni, from all eras, have pursued their own passions—to fantastic effect. I never would have thought I would be able to find charcoal peanuts and literary board games in one spot! I celebrate the spirit that is Brown and that has encouraged so many people to strike out on their own. I hope BAM will continue this guide in years to come because I cannot wait to see what other alumni are doing with their myriad talents and ideas.
