A Toast: To Wine, Women and Song!

Vinted on January 1, 2009 binned in commentary, wine appreciation

Ok, before you start writing me off as a hedonistic waste (at least, on the basis of this post title), please check out the post I wrote for Toast To Change, a web network brain-child of Schramsberg Vineyards.

As described by the TTC website:

Toast to Change… celebrates the power each of us has to embrace and inspire change. Join our community of wine lovers and raise your glass to making changes in our lives and championing others who bring about real change in our world.

I don’t consider myself to be someone who is bringing about world-altering change, but I was invited to pen a toast so I decided to write about the things that had inspired me most in 2008: Wine, Women, and Song.

To get the (very un-sordid) details, you can read the entire post at the TTC website.

Cheers and Happy New Year!

    Sometimes people and events in life come together in such a way, that everything that’s really important, seems so real and obvious. And I applaud you for recognizing it, and being grateful for it, and for holding on to it. Those times in life are like getting a second chance at a ‘first’ chance – and they change us forever, and they lead to even more growth. I’ve never met you, but all I can say is -I’m very happy for you!
    P.S. And I agree with you about music too!

    Thanks, Ramblin’. I appreciate the thoughts, and I *am* grateful for them :-). And for the music!

    Right on Joe. Right on.

    Thanks, Sean – Cheers!
