Partake and be drunk oh man upon the wine and the life that is offered to you
When wine flows in the company of brothers and the tables are overfilled with precious foods then these implements of joy will surely bring you into the arms of the gods and to ecstasy.
Explore and be amazed by the dialogue between food and wine which in sooth is and should be as the balance between speaking and listening.
Take pleasure in the conversation between food and wine which will lift your spirit and inspire it to sing thus enabling your heart to remember true beauty.
To make meals into such an art is a part of the great web which is the Art. It is also a part of the great web of the universe.
After such joy it is truly possible to go from work to refreshment and play with vigour, love and an easy mind.
In loneliness the wine turns into a sour poison of forgetfulness.
As the tide it labours without pause, digging an abyss in the chamber of your heart.
Out of the abyss there are cries for more of the poison. Strong it rises demanding the very thing that gives it depth.
Slowly the abyss widens until nothing but its gaping blackness remains of the wounded chest.
Out of its depths the howling demons arises whose teeth and claws spread destruction at every turn.
The slave of the sour wine breaks the laws of the Father, the Brother and the Husband. So filled with decay and mind so beset with poison is he that he only may find faults with others and never himself.
Thus is the lonesome wine only a wine for masters who know to take pleasure in truth even if they themselves have to supply both place and bottle.
