Trevor Boyd, our beloved photographer and friend, whose worked with us many times, went on a trip recently to Norway to visit some friends. There was no surprise at all, Trevor being who he is with his insatiable love for beauty and light, when he came back from the trip, gushingly sending me pictures of beautiful people he’d stayed with and met at a camping trip.
Everything about Norway seems magical. The impeccable life-style that hearkens to a time when things were simpler, and when life moved at a pace that was steady and straightforward, with true steps, and beauty that was found, admonished and celebrated. Trevor’s snap shots reminded me of Earnest Hemingway’s line in A Moveable Feast where he says “We ate well and cheaply, and drank well and cheaply, and slept well and warm together and loved each other.” Maybe not in true context, but that feeling of living a simple, full, beautiful life. His pictures convey this feeling that every breathe taken, is taken with meaning. That there’s a reason for all this. This is the essence of style. Living beautifully, living well and living with meaning, and you’ll find that those with impeccable style and life-style would be the ones who’ve grasped this.
Here’s to a life lived well and full. Cheers.
