  • Beer. And places where you can drink beer. And moments where you enjoyed beer... either alone or with someone else. It comes as no surprise that good stories are sparked by tiny observations, being allowed to grow. Random thoughts, coming to maturity, giving seemingly casual observations that tiny bit more. A twist, a provocative thought, a little smile.
    If no beer available, try wine... and remember, it was Hemmingway who said 'Write drunk, edit sober'. That could also have been Bukowski... So why not, add whisky to the list.
