Artful Thursday: Raise Your Glass!

Wine gives courage and makes men more apt for passion. Ovid

What is the definition of a good wine? It should start and end with a smile.
 William Sokolin 

 Wine is bottled poetry. Robert Louis Stevenson
A great festival, Anthesteria, was held near mid-month of the ancient Greek lunar month of Anthesterion (roughly January to February) to honor Dionysus- the Greek God of Wine. It was a three day festival during which social order was cast aside, allowing slaves to enjoy the revelry. So it is with great pleasure that I present Dionysus as this week's Artful Thursday subject.
