Boutique properties possess an unending array of thought-provoking design and architecture. They are structures born of a profound sense of reflection, like in last night’s episode of Numbers. As the character, Charlie, reflects on writing a paper he must leave behind for the professors who will follow him. Here we divert a bit to take in a soulful statement:
“Our ancestors stories belong to us now. Each of their signatures is a self swallowing set, a name that shorthands a body of thought. A life’s work .
The question isn’t who you are. The question is: who did I turn out to be? Who am I to you? Are faded chalk marks and scratches on the floor the only evidence I was here.
Or did some scribbled note, some fragment of a proof, infer to your perception of the world; even confirm it, cementing what you felt in your heart to be true. With the balance of left column to write.
What footprints have I left behind? Do they endure? Or has the ocean of discovery washed them away already?
How many lives have I touched? Have I touched yours?”
For property owners and managers around the world; how did you touch the lives of your guests? How will they remember your staff, your property, your services?
