A YEAR OF FIVES
This edition of the column marks its one year anniversary: volume 52 of “The Five Most Beautiful Things In The World This Week.” For the last 52 weeks I’ve tried to bring you content that you will find inspiring, entertaining and (occasionally) useful. It has been so much fun for me to search for images and themes that I find visually alluring and interesting and to share them with the Beekman 1802 community.
The column came about when Brent approached me to be a regular contributor to the website. I was very honored to be asked and he came up with the perfect vehicle for me to share my thoughs: five images each week, plucked from anywhere in the world that are beautiful and inspiring with some accompanying text. The idea was so simple and so wonderful in its purity that I jumped at the opportunity. It was perfect for me, and I thank Brent (and Josh) for their encouragement.
The column is very much Brent’s idea but it is also a collaboration. Each week I surprise Brent with the five images and theme I’ve chosen just as he surprises me with the iconic image of the number 5 that introduces the column each week. I never know what Brent is going to choose and I’m always so impressed by the care he takes in selecting just the right image of the number 5 to fit the theme I’ve chosen to share. Below are five of my favourite fives that Brent has selected over the last year to introduce the column.
I look forward to contributing more beautiful things to Beekman1802.com in the year to come. I sincerely hope you have enjoyed the column and have found it to be a source of inspiration. Were there any standout favorites?
