Another thing that excites me about the end of this final semester: I’ll get to read more, so much more. Pair fantastic wine with Literature. Going to start tonight, returning to the Tobias Wolff’s work. And with my being fully-immersed in the wine world, full-time, I can study the business more closely, jot bays of notes. Collect material for my pages, as well. Will miss the students, though. But I can’t afford emotion at this stage in my progression. Focus, pragmatism, practicality. Tonight’s wine, a Dry Creek Syrah. Been open for about an hour. All magic encouraged, charged. Sipping with careful carelessness, whatever that means.
