It’s been ages. Well, almost one year, since I spewed any words out into this format of a universe. I guess there is no time like the present.
Oregon is my home. At least one of them anyway. For the last 8 years Ive been claiming it as my address and my stomping grounds. I never realized wine would be my career, nor did I even dream of such. For those that have never been, don’t come. It’s a waste of your time. It’s dreary and cloud ridden for most of the year. You will hate it. I promise. #winkyface
What I am truly getting at is this: Oregon+Wine= a match made in the heavens.
Whichever heavens you dream of, they are here. Honestly. I’m not a great liar.
As I reflect on my eighth year here in this horrible state, it has become crystal clear to me that wine is now my career. It is something I have fallen deeply in love with. The type of passion only one can dream of. A life in pursuit of the next best thing wherever or whatever that may be. For me, it is here. In Oregon. But for the love of us all, please don’t tell anyone. It’s a super secret. Like only the kind you find on random searches like this, late night, as a weird secret agent writer. If that’s you, come find me. I’ve got lots of goodies in my tool box.
In October of 2018, I find myself lucky, blessed, honored, to be a part of the up and coming wine scene in one of the most beautiful diverse states of the 50. No big deal. Only come here if you plan to live a life enslaved to a grapevine, or a mountain, or river, or ocean. You might just find all those things here. Just tell the ones you love. Otherwise, don’t bother.
Oregon…. now accepting applications for people who help change the progressive world, love one another, care about all living things, embrace peace, show compassion when it’s desperately needed, and help protect the environment and wild habitats one peaceful step at a time. If that’s you, we need you now more than ever. Actually, we need all of you everywhere. The time is now.
As always, be good to one another. Show more compassion now more than ever. Practice humility. Share the light and love. Choose to be the better person. Act upon the behalf of the greater good. BE THE CHANGE.
Sending all the love and light and peace I possibly can through these words ❤️
