Scotch And Soda
Scotch and soda, a jigger of gin. Ask anyone who reaches a certain age there is nothing to compare with a cup of rich coffee in the morning and a fine glass of Scotch to top off an evening. No matter where you are we all need a little relaxation after a day that for most of us is filled with unprecedented anxiety, frustration, and a certain amount of apprehension.
The trials and tribulations of our society today gone is a sophistication associated with an era long since past. Too many of us are caught in a whirlwind of modern day living, or is it just existing? We have become too caught up in the unprecedented turmoil of our surroundings. It is so sad that an era of refinement coupled with a defined etiquette is all but lost in today's culture. So hurried are we now in our attempt to be something were 're not only to realize that in creating this illusion of where stability and contentment has all but disappeared has redefined the 1st, 2, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6" href="blank#" rel=nofollow>21st century.
A fine glass of Scotch is like putting on the Ritz. The epitome of sophistication and refinement that was a symbol of an era. An era where no matter how much misery there was people over came it. If it was just for a moment and escaped to a self imposed elegance. I like to thing of myself as one who like my father before took the time at the end of the day to hoist a fine glass of Scotch in giving thanks just for making it through the day. This is the symbol of dapper sophistication that has become a time honored tradition.
Remembrance of that time since past bring images of an elegance not associated with the reality of today. Too often society has failed in their attempt to retrieve any portion of this refinement that was the norm of that period when people savored moments in a much simpler, slower passe, parse, paste, pause, phase, pa se, Pease" href="blank#" rel=nofollow>pase time. With today's shift in society and culture a new norm has emerged one that embraces a more hurried, more isolated, and more abstract in tone. The rush of today so apparent in the cities of New York and even London leaves one breathless. The society of today no longer is cognoscente of a fellowship that came between one another as was the norm of the culture those many years ago.
We all should hoist a glass of fine Scotch in remembrance of that period where society was much more acumen to a refinement and sophisticated etiquette that prevailed more than a half century ago.
