With so much uncertainty still around travel, events, celebrations and plans in general, spontaneity has taken on a whole new meaning.

For example, friends will say they’re coming to town on a last minute road trip just for a change of scenery and to see what’s happening in Aspen. Or I’ll find myself often going out for a casual dinner with friends and then it winds up being one of the more memorable moments of the month by virtue of surprise encounters or fascinating conversations. Another frequent occurrence is bumping into friends on the slopes and then forming new ski groups to tour the shrines or discover new lines. I love the open mindedness of today’s day and age. The saying “variety is the spice of life” now leans more towards “spontaneity is the spice of life!”
