letter a


bottle of red wine sits in the back of the cardboard. Collecting dust.


It was placed there to ensure that I would not be without wine if I had an emergency.


Emergencies that require wine: 

  • Heart Break.
  • A Bad Day.
  • The Onset of a Zombie Apocalypse.


Seeing it when I reach for a dish — knowing that today was not a day it needed to be open — fills me with comfort.

This blog is a lot like my emergency bottle of wine. Writing provides me with the same sense of security. It is my outlet and my safe space.

So uncork and enjoy. After all, not all wine needs to be saved for emergencies.
