Life, Hospitality and Exploration…

…and now let us welcome "twentyten" (where does the time go).

I have just had the pleasure of visiting an extraordinary living space, with many expressions of art happily co-existing, and I am reflecting about the qualities that enable those special sites where art and decor meet to be a setting for life.
Admittedly, possessing the judgment to amass things of aesthetic quality and the taste to take joy in them reflects a certain refinement. We all have heard stories about the lonely and eccentric collector whose treasures are stashed away and enjoyed only as a greedy and solitary pleasure. How lucky we are to encounter individuals whose collections are reflections of their involvement with interesting places and people.

I wish you all a year filled with life, hospitality, and exploration.

…the joie de vivre that all hotels should radiate,
but precious few do, the Regent Hotel, Hong Kong.
