Luis, Tony, Me, Cesar, and Matthew in the tasting Room ...

4/21.  2012, if you had to know.  Haven’t written a single sentence since home.  Uploaded a couple pieces to other blog, and now I’m sitting to these sentimental strings.  Wrote 4 whole pages this morning in car, in the Comp Book.  Entirely pleased.  Today, in AV, one of the most enriching “shifts” yet.  Met a new crew of Wine lovers from the south bay, that made today’s play a favorable fray.  Glad they stopped by.  They made me again appreciate and hold to the Human element, dimension, to Wine.  Speaking of which, I’d like a little splash of that ’07 I was fortunate enough to take home.  But no, I should halt, hold for the home-brewed coffee.  Need to stop hurrying to that corporate coffee brothel in the A.M.  They suck the fervently earned currency from my wallet’s borders, vicinity.  And the book, getting this morning’s efforts.  Sorry for my cerebral scatter, I’m just a bit worn from yesterday’s run, still, and AV’s heat today.  And, I’m still bothered by last night’s loss of the 700+ words.  Don’t know why.  Nothing about them shined, stirred, or animated the page.

Going to confess, I just took a couple shots of the ’07 Cab-cored cuvée.  And, submitting that I’m screening another episode of the Ghost Adventures program on Travel Channel.  My “Haunted Tasting” pieces would be more than entertaining.  Might be scary, sometimes, for us on camera.  But for viewers, it would be purely entertainment.  But then I think, it would take from the Writing.  My only TRUE passion.  But I can’t write all the time, can I?  I can try.  Maybe that’s my style, my voice, what I’ll be “know for,” writing everything I encounter, all the time, even if it’s in note form.  That’s my urge, that’s why I say I don’t have time nor patience to write some conventional novel.  My mind doesn’t move that way.  Air conditioning on, too strong.  Lowering its presence…

More comfortable.  One of the idiots just said/lamely sang, “Who ya gonna call?  Ghost Adventures!” Idiot.  Guess the reason I want to do a show like this, in my own way, with the permeating Wine presence, is just to see how people react.  And why have wine there?  Well, I guess because I am technically a “wine blogger.” And, because it would make it more enjoyable for us as hosts, and more importantly the viewers.  Think I need another shot of this Cab cuvée to keep my thoughts in their sparkle session.  Tomorrow morning, nothing but Composition, in the Comp Book.  BUT, I would like a little page donation to–  Enough of the promising.  Just act.  Sunriver, I will be back to write, walk, run, swim, relax.  My sister, now, on her red-eye flight, more than likely.  I envy her post, travel obligation in a way you’ll never know, ‘cause I’m incapable of writing it.  Need to revisit my wine, up there in its lonely barrel.  But I can’t.  I need her, Professor Sis.  But either way, I want to make wine.  Should give my brother Kaz a call.  He’s more accessible than Katie.  And, I must say, more experience, and has his OWN unique winemaking voice.  Calling my brother tomorrow, noted…

Yes, I’ve been enjoying quite a bit of artisan beer lately, but I’m a wine-centered writer/winemaker, atop all other.  And so, I hop to kitchen for another shot set.  Pressing “command+S” seven or nine times, so losing nothing.  More wine…

A little funny, my feeling, no lies.  Am I still bothered by those 700+ words falling into their techno-Bermuda Triangle?  Yes.  I can’t let it go, I’ve been urged.  But I will, eventually.  I’ll write my way out of it.  I hope.  Temped to go check a social media account.  But what will that do?  Kelly probably doesn’t even have any “profiles.” Maybe a couple, maybe.  But she never checks them regularly.  Or updates them.  Her existence, sought-after, envied, desired.  It’s simple, rich, actual Life.  Distracted again, by the absurdity of this show.  What is so “travel” about this sequence?  I only take issue, as I take travel seriously, with value sense.  I want to travel, write about all I view.  And these ill-nurtured scuts, with their ambitions, altogether ugly.  Maybe I’m the one to be penalized, faulted for being too knowledge and culture hungry.  Need another ’07 shot.  Just realized I’m closer to 1k than I would have thought.  The book I have envisioned for my first release…  Tell you about it later.  Distracted by my lethargic dissension.

Just saw an ad about comps crashing…  Need to divorce my dependence on these devices.  FOREVER.
