Wine writing

Tuesday the 31st


It is Tuesday and New Year’s Eve. Do I care? I guess but not important. Since I have a new routine forming for past few weeks I have a few surprises here and there. I am used to not caring for the traditional calendar of public by now. Mine moves too fast AND is barely up and running. Because my work requires a lot of back to back activities I have a short attention span now. A todo list is a life saver because I have too much to do as in being busy handling little tasks in my mind and other things get forgotten or delayed unless a todo list keeps them and one visits the list regularly. That is where I am at. Tablet cannot go unless I carry a bag and I cannot Chromebook because no time. We shall see how we do since more stuff ahead. That is the state of Tuesday. I am reviewing a generic wine book and as appears I review a couple more and then I have to find tastings to attend. I guess I will be writing wine but my primary objective is to be on the wine calendar as of present time. My approach toward learning has changed over the past years. Instead of an organized and systematic approach to exploration I accept the fact that the field is a mess and no one system will allow me to handle it. I just get to work without a map basically. For now, after a primer that will mean occasional tastings as time and luck permit. I am sure what I write increases my level of activity for this and my Wine by Cush blog hence they become reactive for all practical purposes and this is in spite of the fact that most my publishing will happen by typing on a 4″ Nokia Lumia 520 screen! I think I produce just fine and I have changed my evaluation strategy also for sometime. Considering how many bad things happen regularly I only bother to mention or review the good ones. Too many to avoid means is better to mark good rather than put too many signs out in the field on bad ones. Fewer flags are a necessity to get somewhere. 31 Dec 2013 8:38 am Lake Merritt, California
