This season was marked by time spent with so many artists and artisans: some colleagues, some customers, some to whom I am customer, those who are friends new and old, and those who helped me with my own plans for Balbec and generally inspired me. For all of their extraordinary work and generous spirits, this poem by Dylan Thomas. Below is a picture of a farm at the end of my road. It isn't his Wales, but I love it just the same.
Happy New Year Everyone!
I am often asked what Balbec means and why I chose the name for our company. I usually respond that I'm a Proust fan and Balbec is a seaside town in his novel. That's the short answer. My computer still autocorrects "Balbec" to "Malbec", which irritates me because I think it should know better by now.
Beauty really is different for everyone, isn't it? And it is always best when it feels good. Here is a little compendium of things I picked up along the way and still love because they work for me. If you find anything interesting or inspiring, it would please me; if there's something you wish to share, I'd welcome it!
