The last two weeks…

I’m in a time of transition…

just hanging…

A few more weeks,

and I’ll be living a different life.




and to be honest… a little fear,

which, though I’ve been trying to dispel,

remains nonetheless.


The uncertainty is overwhelming…

Will the winery succeed?

Will I enjoy the work?

Who will be there when things get rough?




There is so much to think about.

So much to consider…

and plenty of pressure…

After all,

what if I take a fatal step?


Careful… that’s all I’ve been.

Unproductive… that’s what being strictly careful has made me.



A good friend of mine once claimed that it’s the best way to learn…

…I’m trying to embrace that….

within reason.
