Quotes

...In this excerpt from Section 1, "A Rare Find,” Bair recalls the way the High Plains and Little Beaver Creek has changed since when she was a child."
"Evoking the rustic, stylish sophistication of the French Provence has been the objective since I first redid the restaurant in 2002 and the redesign of the rooms in 2003. In that first round, I focused on redesigning the soft furnishings: the linens, the upholstery, a few of the furniture pieces. I kept Michael's terra cotta floors and platform beds, and simply gave the bathrooms a cosmetic face-lift. The current redesign is a total remodel and reconfiguration of every room, bath and suite."
However an NBC spokesman last night denied there was to be any offer, saying: "This is 100 percent not true and it seems anyone suggesting otherwise is ‘royally’ jealous."
"The thing which was waiting was on the alert, it has pounced on me, it flows through me.  I am filled with it. It's nothing: I am the Thing. Existence, liberated, detached, floods over me. I exist. I exist. It's sweet, so sweet, so slow...  It brushes by me, melts and vanishes. Gently, gently. There is bubbling water in my mouth. I swallow. It slides down my throat, it caresses me – and now it comes up again in my mouth"
