After having handed over management of the companies founded by his father Saül, Terry Pomerantz now dedicates his full time to the Pomerantz Foundation, which has for mission to support organizations that help disadvantaged or sick children, or children with a condition that makes them different.
Taking the time to live
During all these years of hard work, Terry has also learned that it’s important to recognize what are the good things in life and to take the time to enjoy them. Hence, Terry has developed a sort of Art of living that he wishes to share, with short reflections that we will regularly publish.
An epicurean person who hates condescendence
Terry is a bon vivant, a true epicurean who puts great importance in the values of friendship, generosity and the good things in life. These things, he loves them with simplicity, never trying to impose them on anyone. Terry particularly abhors condescendence and the judgement of those who, for example, imply that they tasted a better wine than the one they are drinking in his company, that the service of such restaurant is superior to the one they are currently eating at and that the Habs might have won the match they just watched, but they had played better during their last victory.
«Just enough to appreciate, but not too criticize”
Terry repeats this constantly: “I know enough to appreciate a good thing, but I don’t know enough to criticize it.” Terry is convinced that criticism destroys pleasure and that it spreads a layer of grayness on everything it touches. Terry likes the light of day, the light that illuminates and allows to see clearly the beauty of the world.
Terry has thus decided to share with us very simply the things he likes in his chronicle, The Art of Living according to Terry.
