It seems like as soon as New Year's Day is over, here come the Valentine's Day advertisements. Suddenly everything is red and pink with glitter, and hearts and chocolates abound. It's wonderful if you're in love, but if not, too bad for you. Hmmm....
Time to imbibe....
New Year's Eve brings visions of pulsating lights, loud parties, and lots and lots of alcohol. As we head out to the liquor store to stock up for the big night, illuminated signs scream brightly when we approach the door. 'Wine and Spirits' often glows dangerously in bold neon. Spirits? Why do they call it that? What exactly does 'spirits' mean?
One of my ex-boyfriends was a meat cutter. I remember telling him to be careful about his attitude when he went to work. I said that if he had a bad day, someone was going to take home the meat he touched and have an argument with his family around the dinner table. Even all those years ago I was aware of the transference of energy, even to inanimate (or no longer animate) objects. I have become more aware to this day.
