Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 03.10.17

THIS WAS A WEEKEND of highs and lows, the highs being cava and oysters on a Monday night and the lows being all of the things coming through the news lately: Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, the Independence Referendum, Tom Petty… we’re still working through all of the sad news and finding ways to help, while still trying to remember the beauty in life as well. On Sunday night, P picked up tickets to a show by a Scottish singer-songwriter that he’s a fan of and had wanted to see back in Scotland but we weren’t able to make it; amazingly, the artist was just wrapping up a Spanish tour, finishing his last night here in the city. It was a beautiful, melancholic performance, intimate and soulful, evoking emotions and longing in a way that the Scottish do so well. And as for the news, it’s not all bad, for three scientists who helped discover gravitational waves just won the Nobel prize in physics and in the timeless words of Anne Frank, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

This week’s links include the chic former Parisian apartments of textile designer Lisa Fine and Prince of Wales Check blazers; the 5 Best Hotels to Stay in Corsica and much, much more.
