Luxury ……… lux·u·ry – [luhk-shuh-ree, luhg-zhuh-]
The other day the topic of Luxury came up. What is luxury? Can luxury be bought? Can it really be defined? Is it an object, an experience a memory or a feeling? Is it a Hermes leather and cashmere blanket? A bottle of MOËT ET CHANDON À EPERNAY FONDÉE EN 1743 CHAMPAGNE DOM PÉRIGNON BRUT MILLESIME – VINTAGE 1996? Mmm……A perfect cup of morning coffee sitting across from the one that you love?
The definition of luxury is very personal. It can have a price tag or it’s value can not be measured. During certain periods of my life luxury was free time. Time to enjoy those that I loved. Or perhaps something as simple as a beautiful fall day at an empty beach, wrapped in a soft sweater with a good book. Sound familiar? My conclusion? Luxury can not be simply defined, put in a box or, at times, have a price affixed to it.
So I leave you to ponder the question – What is luxury to you? Me, I am off to spend some luxurious time laughing and talking with my friends.
Au Revoir for now.
à bientot …….
