The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Turning


The vineyards of the Sonoma Valley are beginning to turn.  I went on a scouting mission while tea and chat was going on just to see how they are coming along.  These are from the Kunde Vineyards right across from us which seem to have the most color going so far.  It is interesting as different varieties of grapes in different vineyards had barely begun to change.  In fact one vineyard that had Syrah vines, the grapes were still on and had yet to be harvested.
