Life, Wine

Wine for Speechless Moments

I’ve experienced a lot of speechless moments lately. Anyone who knows me well knows that’s highly unusual for me. But, I have nonetheless. Sometimes, it’s when you just can’t help but shake your head at something that happens at work. Other times it’s an emotional bombshell that drops you to your knees and renders you unable to articulate it in words.

Speechless moments, though few and far between, tend to make us stop and think. And when we stop and think, we realize the world around us is amazing, weird, scary, upsetting, funny and variable.

Pausing to think about the times when I have had no words recently, I realized tasting wine can be that way, too. Sometimes we take a sip and a ton of emotions form. Other times, it’s meh.

I don’t have any particular wine to share with these deep thoughts other than to acknowledge that speechless moments are part of life. Enjoy them. And the wine.

  1. I’m the opposite. I am not particularly verbose, and I can seem standoffish at times, but I’m just observing my environment. My lips may not be moving, but my brain is pretty noisy.

      1. Sometimes I wish I could be more like that, but I tend to absorb everything first, and then respond. It can be very frustrating, especially when you think of the perfect comeback half an hour after someone is rude to you. But silence can be a tool too.
