2015 Brought
Life-Changing Events

Pete and I once drank a Syrah from McLaren Vale, Australia called The Dead Arm, made by d'Arenberg.
I Googled d'Arenberg's website, to get the following story behind the name.  Dead Arm Shiraz - d'Arenberg | The Art of Being Different

"Dead Arm is a vine disease caused by the fungus Eutypa Lata that randomly affects vineyards all over the world.  One half, or an 'arm' of the vine slowly becomes reduced to dead wood. That side may be lifeless and brittle, but the grapes on the other side, while low yielding, displays amazing intensity.
"...Dead Arm is all about style, poise and savouriness. The gods may have thrown us challenging conditions and admittedly, there is a slight shift in style...but the quality of this wine speaks for itself..."
And so it is with Life-Changing Events.  Nature is a good example of how "the show goes on," with a concentrated version of the whole.  On the 1st of this year, I felt like hibernating at home and decluttering my home.  Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle feels like a good theme for 2016 for me.  I didn't realize how much "clutter" we amassed in our closet.  Using Alice Inoue's formula of "Only if it brings you joy keep it" was a good model to follow.  As I went through Pete's side of the closet, I relived his career stages by the clothes still hanging on dry-cleaner hangers.  Long sleeve dress business shirts hung in the back of the closet with sticky foam coming apart from the hangers.  Gorgeous colorful shirts hung in the front.  Also the various size shirts reflected life before his heart attack, and after becoming a vegan.
I relived the many food, wine and jazz events we shared with dusty hats, bags and posters.  Without Pete, my core group of friends have included me in their outings.  With the first holiday sans Pete, it was a blessing.  But as I decluttered for 20 hours straight January 1st, and another ten hours the following two days, stopping to prepare for and perform the Uncooking Class, I realized how many events a week we'd go out to, and that's why the clutter.  Within the past three days, I realize that if I can concentrate my efforts by "Reduc"-ing the amount of outings, just like I stopped an often-binge of Trappistes beer and Maui Onion Chips, and losing all those pounds in a week, winning back a body able to fit into precious vintage clothes I'd saved (Reuse) while getting rid of the "in-case I get big again ones", I'd be able to produce the fruits of amazing intensity, my Recipe Book, new recipes and business model, and classes gearing up for the next chapter in life (Recycle).
