Between friends its always old wine in new bottles, but why is it that in much of life its old whine in new battles? Yes, why old whine in new battles!!
Wine is happiness. Shared wine is more happiness.
Wine is made with fruit, sugar, water, yeast and time, with a sprinkling of a few other additives, in a very clean and controlled environment so that the ‘must’ (as it is called) does not turn sour.
The fruit is the result of our toil, our work. Water is life. Sugar is the appreciation we give to our fruit, and the yeast is the wisdom that gives us our learning from the appreciation over time. The environment is the context we give to our reflections. In the wrong or tumultuous context, without the wisdom and appreciation, the wine turns sour, into the whine.
I guess the secret to lasting happiness is to make more wine than whine, to keep making new wine, to appreciate and savor it with friends and loved ones over time.
Cheers! Stay happy!!
