I love wine and I'm around it nearly every day, but I'll be the first to say, wine is not my passion. Living a fantastic, fun & challenging life - that's my passion.
Passion is defined as "a strong and barely controllable emotion" and frankly, I'm thankful I don't feel this way about wine because that wouldn't feel good to me. It actually makes me feel a little uncomfortable. On the other hand, I do have an uncontrollable need & desire to live - to work, play, eat & share every single day - that's what I love to do - I love to live. And I GET to be around wine every day - which is really about people, places, traditions, food pairings & sharing with friends, family & even strangers.
I believe in magic. I believe that if you want in something that feels difficult ((or impossible) and making it a reality will eventually be great. Then one day, it happens - everything you've been dreaming about is in front of you and yet, you get to keep going. You get to build on your progress. This is fun to me. Really really really fun. To keep having those kind of days and to chase all of the greatness life has to offer with a strong and uncontrollable emotion - that's my passion.
So I'm going to keep creating. I'm diving into a project that seems unattainable, even a little ridiculous. I'm going to write something about wine for 365 days. Find out how it all started, and why, click here.
