Nine Wind Bao is just a place where I can talk about the things that interest me. It's a little refuge for beauty and truth. Most of all, it is a celebration of the human spirit, the fount of creativity which gives rise to art, literature, music, a reverence for nature, caring, kindness, humor and wit. The art and craft you see here are all made by real people, and it is my pleasure to follow in the footsteps of my parents, Carolyn Benesh and Robert Liu of Ornament Magazine, in telling their stories. Especially in this day and age, I think it is important for us to surround ourselves with these reminders of the beauty we are capable of.
