Staying in lovely downtown Vancouver at Shangri-La hotel. This town is more continental than NYC. Here with Nissan to drive the JUKE– a small crossover with oodles of style and lots of spunk. Yesterday– an amazing route through lakes and blue mountains, lunch at a flowery lodge overlooking a body of water… heaven!
More on JUKE coming.
When I went to sleep last night this was on my pillow;
‘Conway alone submitted to a rich and growing enchantment. It was not so much an individual thing that attracted him as the gradual revelation of elegance, of modest and impeccable taste, of harmony so fragrant that it seemed to gratify the eye without arresting it.’
(that about sums up this hotel)
Last week we took a 10 hour roadtrip in a Buick Enclave. My conclusion– it beats flying.

This quote was on my pillow at a fabulous estate- The Rookery -in England
“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer”
~ William S Burroughs
“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are some difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it requires some of the same courage which a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes a brave soul to win them.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nissan is infusing their future cars with spurts of Vitamin C, seats that act like lounge chairs and more. Check out my blog on autotrader.com

People of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.
They went out and happened to things.
