Winter goodness

December 31st, 2011

While a simple court-bouillon simmers to poach a pink supper trout, it’s time to count my blessings after a tumultuous year.  I made it – sometimes wondering how – but here we are at the tail end of 2011.  December’s days are slipping into a grey nothing.  January’s stage is curtained, though with some positive events lined up, it promises both continuity and new scenarios.  Certainly I will find (with apologies for recent silence in this space) more time to post these little tidbits on travel, wine and seasonal arrivals in local markets.  So, dear friends and family, the vagabond thanks you for patience, for support through a difficult year and wishes you great health, happiness and promising new horizons.
