Intend. Envision. Enjoy.
Cool. Moist. Relief.
On my social streams a couple of days ago, I asked for help in thinking “cool, moist thoughts”?. Guess what’s happening now?
Why was this so important? Because of the King Fire, a wildfire that’s been burning out of control since Sept. 11. It’s been moving ever closer to us… while sending massive amounts of smoke billowing into town like some kind of advance death troop, bent on suffocating everyone. It’s been horrible. I’ve been trying to stay away as much as possible, just so I could breathe.
So the other day, I put it out there. “Think cool, moist thoughts.” You may have seen the post.
And now… aaaaahhhhhh… rain.
I’m thanking you – and everyone. Even if you think I’m a total crackpot for imagining that we made a difference. I just know that I asked for help from you, the powers that be and the heavens above… and everything changed. We haven’t had rain for months. Till now.
I think that’s how it happens. All of it. Let’s remember that, shall we? Remind me if I forget, OK? I’ll do the same for you. 😀
Don’t Judge the Book By It’s Maker
OK, I know this video was created by/for an insurance company.
But that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s seriously awesome and makes me bawl. Every. Damn. Time.

I literally only met him minutes before this Chat… but Dario Sattui may well be the most inspiring person I’ve met all year!
Dario is the great-grandson of Vittori Sattui, founder of V. Sattui Vineyards in the Napa Valley. He may have learned the vintner business from family… but his love of Medieval architecture is all his own!
Castello di Amorosa is the culmination of these two great loves…
One part 13th century Tuscan castle, one part world class winery.
ALL parts passion and holding to your vision!
Photography brought me to Castello di Amorosa… I was there with my friend Annette Biggers for one of her fantastic fairy tale photo shoots. We spent 2 days at the castle. The entire time, I was amazed by the love, the attention to detail, the extreme vision that went into this place. It made me so curious to know the person behind it all! I hadn’t even finished setting up for my Chats with Annette and Jennifer (MUCH more than a model!)… when in walked Dario. I scrambled to get set up enough to record him, because I wasn’t going to miss this opportunity!
Dario is an artist, a dreamer, a vintner, a visionary… but he believes in living those dreams and fulfilling them as big and boldly as you possibly can. The Castle is visual proof that this is possible… my Chat with Dario makes it perfectly clear why he was able to pull it of.
He’s is easily one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. The story of the 30+ years that it took to build the Castle is the thing legends are made of.
And yes, I’d only met him minutes before this interview… but I just knew he had Important Things to share with us from his amazing life journey.
And boy, was I right!!! 😀
