Life v. Lifestyle
I've been at serious risk for quite some time of being accused with good reason of being an Alice Feiring stalker But I'll risk the additional chance of solidifying that perception in the minds of many by pointing you all toward something that I'd never seen before today. It's a beautiful and revealing piece Ms. Feiring wrote in 2007 for the New York Times to which she so very subtly links in a recent blog post of hers at Veritas in Vino that addresses ethics and blogging.
"How My Plumber Turned Water into Wine" made me smile…broadly. You will too.
The essay is also a perfect example of what's missing from the wine writing genre: A focus on REAL life, versus Lifestyle.
