A review of 50 first experiences

First 23 – tried oak leaf wine

Leave a comment

Wine made from autumn leaves savoured at a New Year’s dinner with Gillian and Mark. Though I might not have known if I hadn’t been told (or seen the label) – holding the taste in my mouth, this evoked layers of oak leaves and the rustle and crunch of feet walking through them. Delicious, apple and pear flavours, I seem to remember.

Marks: 10/10 for flavour, evocativeness (is that right?) of autumn, company (actually, it was the company that really made it special), and it being the first day of the New Year.

I turned 50 in June and have decided to write about some of the new experiences that happen to me over the next 12 months, not in a show-off way, but to remind myself (and any others that access this) that new experiences happen in all shapes and sizes. I suppose I'm looking at ways to remind myself of the positives. I'm also hoping this will spark off taking steps in a few different directions - what, I don't yet know.
