On Wednesday, July 9, I was starting work on a quick article about a wonderful posting by fellow blogger Easy & Elegant Life. About two sentences into my missive, that was to be titled “An Example of Elegance,” I was sidetracked by a trip to the hospital for the birth of my beautiful son, Brooks. He and mom are in great shape and we are starting to get used to the new swing of life. Everything has changed, but already I could not imagine it any other way.
To that point, I want to put in a good word for D.C.’s Sibley Memorial Hospital. From start to finish the maternity ward’s staff was wonderful and made the entire experience a happy and memorable one. They are all pros and great people to boot. Thanks very much – from all three of us!
And I didn’t forget about my intended post. I’ve been waiting to get back to it, so for the sake of brevity here’s the abridged version.
On Easy & Elegant Life, there is a wonderful link to Charlie Rose’s interview with Hubert de Givenchey, surely one of the most stylish gents still breathing. The whole discussion, what makes a man elegant – what makes him a gentleman, is a treat and worth seeing. It certainly gives me the inspiration to keep fighting the good fight. Please stop by and take a look.
I do make an effort to keep my personal life out of your way, but figured this is a pretty reasonable reason for some slower posts in the coming days. So, please bear with me and don’t worry, I’ll be writing – It’s just likely that I will have a baby in one hand.
