They say that wine is a good collection – a gift from himself as a young, but older. The only question is whether I want to have such a gift? For example, the bottle Chateau Leoville Las Casas must lie for 30-40 years before her decent gin will be released. This means I will … ah … for 70! Dovlatov it was not yet forty when he had written:
‘I worried so-called midlife crisis “, ie the beginning of any disease, the destruction of the intestines, joints and other filth. And I never imagined that the most challenging over the years for me will be overcome life itself – to get up in the morning to call, write all this nonsense and the wheel and I’m sick of dealings. ”
So what to expect in 70 years? ”
I remember one popular-science film about aging. Young people on the street ask a simple question: if you want to live long? Someone, without hesitation, puts the finishing option to mark a hundred years, someone made this exception: only if you stay healthy. Then the same question is asked by citizens with shortness of breath and trembling hands. All as a rejection of the prospect to live another 30 years. Many people say – why? All my friends and relatives have died, health has gone, for me in life there are few interesting things.
We return to that bottle of wine that we bought on the day when all the teeth were in place, and a tattoo “butterfly” in the belly looked like it was a moth, not a giant butterfly. One, without friends, with aging is not only the ability to distinguish tastes, you’re sitting in front of a bottle of wine purchased at retirement with a piece of cheese …
Sad is the picture or gay?
On the other hand, the wine is able to collect only professional swinger. Who managed the impossible: as a passion to make friends with discipline. And whose love of life and ability to enjoy this moment may even scare. Remember: Khyam, when he wrote that inseparable from her friend and with a cup of wine was well over 70. Vitality and a sort of senile enlightenment subtle way connected. I always remember about this, listening Payntopa Perkins – who in his 95 still calls her baby carousing in the henhouse.
And you would have to store the wine for 30-40 years?
