LISTEN

One of the things I learned around the Cells and the Sacred material is how to listen. With all the meditation teachers talking about be in the now, be present, though I appreciate the words I didn’t make much change when it came to conversations with people that I had often found myself judging.

Why Wine

Once Upon a Time – Inglenook

I’m so glad to see Inglenook back in the news thanks to Coppola. Why? Years ago when I first started photographing wine through the microscope, when Inglenook made great wine and still ‘lived’ in their original buildings, their PR director hired me to photograph 45 years of their cabs. This was a very special tasting event with the Wine Spectator and who’s who in wine...
