Sound bites

Sound, as in sound advice. Bites because these are morsels to chew on. I can’t reveal the source of these; take them on faith.


Surrender to what is; do not yield what could be.


The past is the mentor of the future, but the present is our constant companion.


The nature of man is to seek. The nature of god is to be at peace. Man’s greatest search is for peace.


Where does god end? And if god is in heaven, where does heaven end?


The faster you go, the greater the blur in the things closest to you–unless they are moving at the same speed.

Knowledge clears a path through the jungle, but it ultimately leads to a chasm; only on the wings of faith can we cross the void to wisdom.


I’m going to miss this life when it’s over, but I never want to come back.

  1. Hi Lee,

    I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to reach out about us possibly featuring Virginia Beer: A Guide from Colonial Days to Craft’s Golden Age in an upcoming issue of our Charlottesville Wine & Country Living magazine. In each issue of this bi-annual publication, we include a few book and exhibit descriptions along with a high resolution photo of the author and a high resolution photo of the book cover. Here is a link to the digital edition of our last issue for your reference:

    We feel Virginia Beer: A Guide from Colonial Days to Craft’s Golden Age would be a great fit for our publication and would love to consider including it. I will need these images in by next Monday, March 4, as we are working on the write-ups and collecting all images this week.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is someone else who can assist us in obtaining these images. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Sarah–Many thanks for your note. My apologies for not responding sooner.
      I think that would be great. Let me forward your note to my publicist at U.Va. Press to make sure you get the images you want. And feel free to contact me directly at my email address– Also, my cell is (804) 874-6069.
      BTW–The book is part of the Virginia Festival of the Book this year, and I’ll be part of a panel discussion March 21 at The Lodge at Old Trail. It’d be great if you could join us.
