When I was a little girl there was a commercial for Galileo wine where a man would look into the camera and say in a deep voice, “We will sell no wine before it’s time.” Not being a wine drinker when I was ten, I didn’t really have a clue what all of this meant but now that I 1) drink wine and 2) know a little about how it is made, I appreciate the premise.
There are no shortcuts when it comes to doing things well – be that learning a language, writing a book, dating or fostering relationships. The best things in life – the ones most worth while – require their own unique timing. They can’t be manufactured by pulling an all-nighter and they don’t sustain without a foundation built. And the older I get, the more I realize this.
Here’s to a great vintage and to sipping slowly enough to enjoy what we’re imbibing!
