Life Pairings: A tropical vacation. During COVID since we can’t travel: watching Tropic Thunder (Swiss Family Robinson for older crowds) on Netflix, in bed, in your pajamas, while drinking an entire bottle of this wine straight from the bottle.
Self care: run a bath, get a mani-pedi, get a massage, crack open a bottle of L.01 and take care of yourself.
Literary Pairings: “One should always be drunk. That's all that matters...But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you choose. But get drunk.” ― Charles Baudelaire
Thoughtful: “I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Sensual: “A little dogwood tree is losing its mind; overflowing with blossomfoam, like a sudsy mug of beer, like a bride ripping off her clothes, dropping snow white petals to the ground in clouds, so nature’s wastefulness seems quietly obscene. It’s been doing that all week: making beauty, and throwing it away, and making more.” -Tony Hoagland, Donkey Gospel
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”― Bruce Lee
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”― Marilyn Monroe
