My most sincere apologies for getting this weekly update out a little later than usual, but I’ve been a bit distracted as of late. First, as I’m sure y’all are aware, there’s a little thing called harvest gong on in California and Burgundy right now, and even though I’m not directly involved this year (sigh), I can’t seem to tear myself away from reading every single update and article I can find on the topic. I tried to get my fix by sneaking up to Healdsburg a few weeks ago to help out with a little grape treading and to grill up some lunch for some hungry harvest workers. But I still find myself jones-ing for more info and more involvement on the harvest front. Second, as a political junkie and former staffer on two presidential campaigns (both involving incumbents), I’m currently obsessed with the current horse race. In short, two of my life’s passions have kicked into high gear at the same time, and as a result, I’m suffering from some serious ADD.
I’m hoping that attending some of these events will help calm my nerves.
