My friends are all over the world. I love that about them, and I love what they bring to me. This is from my friend Ada Levy in Florida. She sent this to me on November 17, and I immediately knew that this would be a great Christmas blog for you. It’s an amazing five minutes of “Be Here Now.” There seems like there is no better place to be.

Merry Christmas to you, my wine-blog friends. I wish you much joy today, and always.
