This blog is about passion. Passion for life. Passion for friends. Passion for food, good health, art, music, design, innovation, travel, gardening, mindfulness and more. At the core of my passion is a moment in August when you can smell the flowers in the garden, taste amazing fruits and vegetables from the fields, drink a crisp wine and have deep and meaningful conversations with a friend, loved one, colleague or someone inspiring. I hope you see yourself here too.

I bring this site to you. I want to light you up through words, pictures, ideas and inspiration with me and my amazing group of friends.

This blog is a tribute to my late brother Robert August Earle, III. He was full of life and passion.

Here comes the sun.
