Too Early For A Glass Of Wine?

"Too Early For A Glass Of Wine?”   is the 7th in my 2018 series of 'Summer Shorts' original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal


Is it too early for a glass of wine?” miaowed Erna invitingly at about ten past five in the afternoon - and soon a bottle of Bandol rosé nestled in an ice bucket on the wrought iron garden table. This was shortly joined by a carpaccio of small triangles of veal and salmon, superbly fresh and presented with such care and attention and colour and beauty and drizzled with light, patterned sauces as to create the impression of nibbling a stained glass window … only less brittle and more delicate!

With those refreshing flavours settling on my palate, I looked around me at the greens of nature, the changing blues of the sky and the taupes and ochres of man and land and wondered anew at my existence. What chance had brought me into the bosom of such love and tranquility?

Of course I knew that chance had little to do with it and the life that I enjoyed was born from my own desire and design. Partly design in the exact sense as in an architect or draughtsman at their drawing board producing a precise blueprint and partly of a design not at all like that. Quite different in fact.

The second, and arguably more significant, element of my design was one of choosing to live my life in a particular way, a way of caring and sharing and largely devoid of material ambition. My desire was to live that way and in the present moment, knowing that my tomorrows would be catered for in whatever way destiny saw fit to reward me.

Well,” I thought, “I must have done something right.” The carpaccio was divine, I took another sip of Bandol, smiled to Erna lounging near me, picked up my pad and pen and started to write ….. “Is it too early for a glass of wine?”

I am Tom Riach. I live and write in the sunny south of Portugal.

Your input is appreciated so please comment on ”Too Early For A Glass Of Wine?”


It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it trouble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

Today I host my 'Wake Up Leisure and Learning Breaks', personal mentoring and business guidance, in the tranquility and calm of the sunny south of Portugal and I am the author of several best-selling books on the subject of successful living.

CONTACT ME - I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
