Almost two years ago, I posted on Facebook* that I was starting this book project of my memoirs. The reactions made me smile; one, from a cousin, made me laugh:
"Yay! You are one of the most fascinating, smart, sexy, imaginative, funny, clever, handsome men of our time. It shall be quite a read!" Leslie Dame
Now how do I live up to that?!
You're probably wondering, Edward Who?! So before you begin, maybe you want to check me out at "Who is Edward Carter?" On your mobile phone, just click on the Menu Block at the upper right corner, and follow the plain text list.
This is the story of most of my amazing life. Starting in 1940 in Westchester County, north of New York City, my romantic adventures have bred lasting friendships and dynamic companies around the world.
Besides setting up companies, creating jobs, and motivating ordinary people to do extraordinary things, perhaps I'm best known for handsome partners, stylish parties, and stunning homes, culminating in "The White Elephant" in the wilds of Thailand today.
The Introduction and Chapters One through Twenty-three are complete, just click on Book Contents in the menu bar to select and read them. The rest of my memoirs are "under construction" - working on Chapter Twenty-four right now.
If you love to read about travel, all my newsletters and my British Airways First Class Hotel Selection are in Edward Carter's Travel Journals.
Below is my study in our home that we call "The White Elephant." I'm at the desk writing to you right now.
The White Elephant House, our home, is the Blue Dot where
Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos meet.
It is a one-hour flight east from Bangkok.

It is Friday, March 15, 2019, The Ides of March -
Wikipedia: The Ides of March (/aɪdz/; Latin: Idus Martiae, Late Latin: Idus Martii) is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts. In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar which made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history.
