"Wine is sunlight held together by water." So said Galileo Galilei. Yes, the same man who challenged the Church by figuring out that the Earth was not center of the universe. Incredibly smart man!
Like Galileo, I also enjoy an occasional glass of wine. I make my own SENSUOUS "sunlight" for just pennies! I have some delicious blackberry wine that is ready to bottle, and I've made grape, plum, elderberry and others. If I can make it, you can make it. Making wine is not as easy as it might sound. Nor is it difficult. Like a child or a garden, it requires careful nurturing. But what a nice treat for your labor is done! When the wine is ready to pour, it's WOW, a glimpse of Heaven!
Although I don't sell anything, not even the wine or wine-making how to, you can read my occasional wine making blogs for tips and good sources. The process is incredibly rewarding and fascinating and I'm willing to help you through it if you give it a try. Making wine is so, so fun! Even better, sharing a toast of your homemade wine with friends and family and knowing they like it!
Welcome to The Pauley Principle!
The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!
Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.
