Today I don’t feel like writing about wine but I do feel like drinking it. Copious amounts in fact. I can’t stand the news, more terrorist attacks, more refugees in search of a home, melting glaciers. I decided to post this picture that I took some years ago in Chile where I went hiking at the Torres del Paine park in Patagonia.
I cried when I saw my first glacier, I was so moved by it’s beauty. To think that they are melting and that one day much of what we see now and many animals might no longer walk the earth is staggering.
I can’t watch the news about Brussels and another horrific and senseless act meant to terrorize us. It’s also hard to read the paper and see more photos of mothers and their children desperately fleeing war zones and landing on shores where they are not particularly welcome. Today everything seems grey. As Dr. Seuss would say, today is one of my many colored days. I think wine might be just the antidote actually.
