the roaring twenties

I’d say that by now it’s a relatively safe bet to say that you’ll have had quite enough of the “new year, new me” chat, and that’s before we even start talking about how many questionable photos from 10 years ago that I’ve seen during the last month or so. Too many is the answer, far too many. We really do love a new start, but why is it that before that can happen we need to spend so much time reflecting? It makes sense, I suppose, to learn from your mistakes… and of course your triumphs (sorry, I’m trying to be more positive in 2020 for the sake of my colleagues – not that we’re calling it a resolution).

musings on time

My grandmother is 97 years old. She doesn’t say much these days, but when she speaks it can often be profound. One thing she has said the last few times I have seen her is, “I wish we had more time.” In November I was judging the World Whiskies Awards in Washington, DC. The judges were a selection of amazing folks from all over the country, ranging from distillers to spirits writers to bar owners. Among my friends there was Lew Bryson, who commented that he wished we had more time to catch up. It made me start thinking back to my grandma’s comments and how profound they really are. Many of the friends I’ve made over the years are people I see repeatedly at different events. We have such a short…
