We Don't Have to Be Stuck - Make it Simple

Sitting down with a good book and a glass of wine, it is amazing what you might learn.  Simply opening a hundred year old first edition and reading the forward my mind is blow away.  Holding in your hands a direct a connection to knowledge gives time for pause.  A sip of wine during that pause allows for contemplation.  I'm left to explore the first shared thoughts that catch my eye.

"On my road to Deli I passed a hundred travelers, each was my brother."

After another sip, I swirl my wine before sipping again.  Such contrast on the roads today.

I'm Ready For Some Delicious Fruit

rather than living in frustration I close my eyes and imagine a new tomorrow.  one by one the troubling realities of today transform.  taking shape first as a dream, I can see the outline of their reality.  isolated in the wilderness I have increasing become reconnected.  I am not alone.  great prophets already live among us, calling out, hoping to stir us awake.  turn off the tv, tune out the hatred. Open up your eyes and see all that is beautiful before us.  The world is bountiful, it is time once again to taste the fruit of knowledge... I will proudly be cast out of the garden in which we currently live.

Where Do the Days Go?

The last few months have flown past like a drunken blur from a high school weekend.  Meaning, I've had fun but I knew things could be better.  Life around me seems to suck but I know better days are on the way.  And worst of all I haven't been enjoying good stuff, rather I've just been enjoying whatever is on hand cause it is easy to get to.  Though I've learned it's a good thing to grow-up, I guess, sadly sometimes we must digress to appreciate all that the world has to offer.

With all the troubling news in the world, the tough economy and a strong desire to find happiness in these gloom filled times, I've spent more time in the wilderness then writing.  Back with nature, high in the Mts, deep in the woods or lost on a beach; it has been good to get away from it all.  The more the remote, the more I found my enjoyment, save one important detail... wine.

When gas stations are the only supply stops quality wine is hard to come by.  So now back in-town, I'm stocking up on "essentials" for my next disappearance.  I wonder what Mitolo 'Reiver' Shiraz 2006 will taste like in my camel pack?
