“One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters…But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.”
I’ll admit that I like more than red wine. In fact, I like gin and tonics, margaritas (on the rocks), champagne, cider, and beer. But…red wine has been a favorite, and a staple, for a long time. When I went to college (years and years ago), I was pretty much a light beer drinker. I didn’t know a lot about alcohol, other than I liked how it made me feel. A boyfriend I had in college helped me to learn about wine, and eventually, I came to really understand and love reds…cheap to expensive.
Red wine also tends to (if I drink too much) make me rather horny.
So here it is…the count down to the end of February PhotoFest. (And dammit…I just noticed a crack in that glass…)
And BTW…Charles Baudelaire is one of my favorite poets. I was introduced to him in college with the poem “Carrion,” which has somehow always stuck with me.
