Attending a harvest party in Napa, later. Excited to hop over the hill. Bringing writing and media tools. Maybe bring home a couple Napa Cabs. Need some new ones in the collection. Either way, an adventure, I’m making it. Deciding not to post the 1000 word rant from yesterday. Will push it into a larger work. Always asking my Self, “Where are these pages going?” Much the same way a wine maker may ask, “Where are these grapes going?” Didn’t sleep well last night. But, yesterday I did pass 1700 words, somehow. My mood was polluted with angst, rejection. But now, I sit in a sitting of forward, ease and balance.
Will write you later, after the trip, kindest of readers. The temperature has dropped significantly in the last couple days. As a result of this wine realm, I am increasingly more fascinated with weather patterns. This 2010 harvest taught me a lot about weather’s impact on the fruit, anticipation of climatic change, variables. Taught me much, just as well, about my reactionary artistry.
