There's nothing like a good glass of wine to help wind a story into an epic experience.
Original Olympic Cellars
"Working Girl", Kathy Charlton
, invites readers to connect the historical (and sometimes hysterical
) dots from:
- Rowing Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics,
- A near salad bar at TGI Friday’s survival story!
- Best seller "Boys in the Boat's" connection between University of Washington and Sequim.
All to illustrate how dedicated collaboration
: be it making wonderful wine, or beating all odds to win Gold , depends on tenacity and teamwork!
“Great crews may have men or women of exceptional talent or strength; they may have outstanding coxswains or stroke oars or bowmen; but they have no stars. The team effort—the perfectly synchronized flow of muscle, oars, boat, and water; the single, whole, unified, and beautiful symphony that a crew in motion becomes—is all that matters. Not the individual, not the self.” - George Pocock
So pour a nice glass of Olympic Cellars
wine, (I always try to keep a bottle of their "Handyman Red
" on hand!) and
read Kathy's great post
before you read - or re-read - Daniel James Brown's Boys in the Boat
A great summer adventure awaits!
