Seems that the weather is no longer confusing and we are slogging our way to harvest. We are in a lull in the vineyard and most of the decisions of the spring are over and harvest looms. It would seem a great time to take a break. The Frenchies are (in fact they take a lot of breaks, full-time workers in France are guaranteed at least five weeks vacation) but most of us aren’t. Why? I think we pursue the dollar at the expense of enjoyment. Does us a lot of good? I’ll let you decide.

Maybe we turn our backs to the good things of life too often – they don’t come too often.
