The Sicilians say, that Sicily is a great place to live but a terrible place to work. The have the sun, the sea, the wine and the women, but they don't have the money and therefore, work is not priority. What can be done today should most definitely be done tomorrow.

This post comes from the Island of Sicily. Actually from an airplane, somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean. I am returning to the States from the Mediterranean for the first time in two years. Having lived in Sicily for twelve months I can say I have a fair knowledge of the culture and the people. Having worked with a family that owns a vineyard for a greater part of my residence, I can say that I have a fair amount knowledge and appreciation for the wines.
