Cocktail Hour

Cocktail Hour seems to have fallen by the wayside. I’m not sure why. Several years ago, I instituted cocktail hour and I’ve been sticking to it as often as is practical. For instance, here’s a photo of my favorite drink from just a day ago.

The idea, for me, is to sit back, relax, reflect on the day, ponder what remains, and consider the future. Now, this is not an extreme effort, but a natural, organic unfolding. Call it a chance to let the mind roam without the usual boundaries of work or organized play. Often times, people jump from work, to home, to other activities without a bit of decompression. That’s a shame. An hour of calm is a good way to prepare for the storm.

Give it a try with the beverage of your choice.
