Thorough Purebred

modern in the father time
“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.” – Oscar Wilde

Straight-forward out-of-control liquid speech from wines once made to truly evolve. Not that the 100-yard dash isn’t fun, too, but there’s something rhythmically magical about the long distance runner that I miss with the last decade contenders. The uninterrupted book vs. the sitcom, commercials and all.

Brilliance, in order preference.
