25 years celebrating @ejaf an organization who has touched the lives of so many in caring for one of the largest health crisis, AIDS. Last night at the Cathedral of St John the Divine, where 10 years ago his beloved best friend Ingrid Sischy & sister Sandy Brandt honored Elton at his 60th birthday. And this year @eltonjohn and his husband @davidfurnish hosted #PresidentBillClinton, the @clintonfoundation, @trudiestyler, @theofficialsting, @nygovcuomo, and #ArethaFranklin who tore the house down.
Candles lit, lighting the cathedral with love and compassion for what Elton and David have created. Thank you both.
@urbanzen sharing and caring for those in need

@donlemoncnn how you spoke out on @CNN last night with tears in yours eyes as we all sit in shock over yet another shooting. #sutherlandsprings a baptist church with 26 dead. A month ago in Las Vegas with 58 dead. How many more children, grandchilden, sisters, husbands, friends and loved ones must we lose? Let's stand up as a country, not a republican or a democrat but as one community. Thank you @juliannemoore @katiecouric for your amazing film shown at #sundance 2 years ago maria CUOMO and her husband @mr_kennethcole

What an honor to CONNECT the dots with the interior design community at the NYC & G Innovation in Design Awards. Thank you Kendell Cronstrom, Marianne Howatson and @cottagesgardens for this wonderful honor.
It all started with @TreyLaird, @DominicKozerski, @PeterMarinoarchitect and Christina Ong an unbelievable team that brought to life the launch of DKNY and Donna Karan London and back to NYC THEN my collaboration with Yew Kuan to create a sanctuary in Parrot Cay for my family and friends. And now @UrbanZen the ideas continue with the work we do to preserve the cultures of the world. The epitome of calm in the chaos with our home furniture and objects of desire found at Urban Zen LA, NYC and Hamptons.#cgidas
