I love Sofia Coppola’s ‘Lost in Translation’. My eyes gobble it up. I am Bob Harris. At the bar. Ears full of piano, punctuated only by ice, tinking in my whisky.
The movie came to mind when with my gin maker friend. He answered all my ginny questions. Except one.
Provenance, quality, timeline, ingredients, packaging, tasting notes, botanicals, mixing… easy-peasy.
Then, I asked what drinking his gin said about me. To myself. To others. How I felt… Silence. The story ended where it should have begun.
I love interesting. Pictures. Stories. Feelings. We all do. It’s where all business should start.
