So About the New Look…

“Drink Vicariously” has been reborn as “Love and Barley.”

The inspiration for the new name is from a collection of poems by the Japanese haiku master Basho, who eschewed material possessions and devoted his life to traveling. The new name pinpoints our passions: barley, travel, and writing.

Befittingly, the compilation “On Love and Barley” begins with poetry written on, for, and about the new year:

In my new robe

this morning–

someone else

New Year

Feeling broody

From late autumn

 Spring come – New Year’s

gourd stuffed, five quarts

of last year’s rice.
