“Many people believe that introversion is about being antisocial, and that’s really a misperception. Because actually it’s just that introverts are differently social. So they would prefer to have a glass of wine with a close friend as opposed to going to a loud party full of strangers.” ~ Susan Cain

Susan Cain is the author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. How does this pertain to the image above? Simple. A close friend and I took a recent trip to Napa County. California wine country. This is the exterior to one of the tasting rooms we stopped at. Actually, we started out from Las Vegas with our wives who decided to stay in San Francisco rather than join us for the day. I admit I did have a different quote I was going to use but when I saw this one I said to myself, “that’s me”! It’s also Chris and Cee at their respective blogs 61 Musings and Cee’s Photography. It’s also, probably, a lot of other people who might even be reading this right about now.

… and to be perfectly honest, there was plenty of wine therapy, too!
