German wines

Wednesday Jan 8th 2014


Wednesday. I got out to get to bus to train as usual but ground was wet and it smelt damp like rain. Sucked. I didn’t get to bring an umbrella. However, when I checked online it says mostly cloudy. Online weather sucks so we see.

I am used to a little bit of reading in the morning now. Some in afternoon also. Boring review texts are boring and don’t go fast because as we read we hit stuff we know and slow down as brain drags a whole chain of thought and we stuck till the whole thing is retrieved only to think how little I care to remember that! It happens. Once is retrieved, we are okay and next time it will pull in a flash. It pays to have a fast brain. It works like a computer with a solid processor and lot of memory. The disadvantage is we get bored fast too! I recovered from boredom and not that bad. The cool thing is I sort of remember where I left this part of a topic last time who knows when! German wines? I was going to volunteer and work at a decent German wine place in lieu of going to Germany last I remember so I can get buried in them so much I have a good reference point! They are too unique, expensive and hard to distinguish because of names, etc to learn by following as a wine topic. One needs to get personal and can follow some of the wines we meet. That was a past memory. The review reading is not bad. It is working on. I am getting closer to the 50% mark now. That pressures my reading speed to get rid of this book. I am not a book person and think I have a good system to read wine books by doing one book at a time but need to finish review and get into the field. It was easy to think wine, beer, food, service etc when I was in the restaurant biz. That was the frame of reference. Now I only have the formal learning frame of reference again which is an exhausted approach! I need a new context to continue learning. I think this is the research stage now. I am past survey and study. That can come back in the future but now the challenge is to be somewhere and dig one by one. That takes time but a trained person can find so much! I am already warned this may start as fun but soon I will be noticed because “he asks very hard questions” will be my m.o. to wine people. Some people won’t mind. 8 Jan 2014 7:06 am Hayward, California
