I wish you all the best possible year. There will be 'ups and downs', as when you are out sailing, everything is magic, perfect wind, sun, boat is heels just as much as you want, but suddenly the wind disappears - you lay still with 'flapping' sails, rolling in 'dead' sea, wonder if/when the wind will ever return... Then slowly the wind nearly not perceptible comes back, the boat starts to accelerate and in some minutes you are on your way again, the boat is running away and the dull moment is instantly forgotten. Life is like that. Without those dull moments, that you can't influence, there wouldn't be any happy moments Thanks Alex for the elegant little video. So simple and beautiful. Why can't I draw like that? I also have a Mont Blanc Happy New Year to all of you Doc
Happy New Year to the wonderful members of the Lounge Great video!

I would like to take the opportunity of this message to congratulate you for the great job you're doing here as a mod. The Hour Lounge is the best in-house brand forum and it is always a pleasure to visit it. Now we are very excited to discover the 2011 novelties which will arrive very soon now... Happy 2011 !

Alex, Thank you for providing a bedrock for the Hour Lounge and the catalyst upon which it pivots. Your balance of attracting snazzy comments, good solid input plus a generous dose of "togetherness" provides a product mix that many might wish to emulate. To all colleagues of the Forum I wish you a most successful Year coupled with happiness and good health. Please keep those contributions rolling in - they are so dearly appreciated. Alex. keep up the good work and keep Doc on his toes!! I reckon we're in for a crackin' year!! Bless you all, Tony

Friendship...

If I may begin 2011 with a quote from CS Lewis on The Four Loves, of which Friendship is included.  It captures what I hope to gain from and offer to my fellow Loungers over the upcoming year "To the Ancients, Friendship seemed the happiest and most fully human of all loves; the crown of life and the school of virtue. The modern world, in comparison, ignores it.... Friendship arises out of mere Companionship when two or more of the companions discover that they have in common some insight or interest or even taste which the others do not share and which, till that moment, each believed to be his own unique treasure (or burden). The typical expression of opening Friendship would be something like, 'What, you too? I thought I was the only one. In a circle of true Friends each man is simply what he is: stands for nothing but himself. No one cares twopence about any one else’s family, profession, class, income, race, or previous history…That is the kingliness of Friendship. We meet like sovereign princes of independent states, abroad, on neutral ground, freed from our contexts. In a perfect Friendship this Appreciative love is, I think, often so great and so firmly based that each member of the circle feels, in his secret heart, humbled before all the rest."
