Easter Sunday (UPDATED with an Easter Monday corrective...)

...feeling lackadaisical & unmotivated...'Bless me, father, for I have sinned. It's been four weeks since my last blog post-- two months since I actually wrote about wine...'

Señor Gerardo Pablo Ramírez, who got my hopes up about buying 600 kilos of Barbera from his neighbor in Coquimbito for an estimated resulting three hundred liters of wine, is MIA. Hans Devloo of Posada Cavieres made the contact, & the last time we got through on his celphone, Ramírez was busy harvesting grapes in Tupungato-- whether for himself or somebody else is part of the question. I'm out of La Posada after two weeks-- Hans had couples turn up who wanted their private rooms, & I was odd man out...
Since then I've been staying at Baco Hostel (fitting, eh?) a very DIY sort of place, down to having linen on your bunk bed. Especially over the Holy Week holiday, Virginia Woolf's 'A Room of One's Own' title has run like a mantra in my head, as four out of the five bunks were filled...

  1. AriesAries (3/21-4/19)

    It's one thing to keep your hopes high, it's quite another to be in complete denial as to what your real chances for success are. Be realistic, today. You are doing yourself no good by ignoring the facts that are confronting you. Face them head on, and you'll see they are not as bad as you fear. Renewal is in the air right now, so if you can just hold on and stay motivated long enough, you will be able to enjoy a change of tides. This new tide will sweep in a much happier era in your life.

  2. Your ideas will be interesting and their originality can make you to be noticed in a very positive manner. Don't take things too much at heart otherwise your nervous resistance might be harmed. Increased risks of hepatic or cardio-vascular troubles; refrain from rich dishes, pastry, and butter. Go and visit your parents. Unexpected gains seem possible provided that you don't kill the hen in the hope of getting golden eggs quickly; don't have your eyes bigger than your belly: greediness is rarely paying!
