Gonna have to spiffy things up around here. Maybe a new banner. Something botanical. Maybe a new font, too. Different but not too fancy.
Keep the serif or lose the serif?
Been awhile! Eh?!!?
Looking back at this I see that I quit writing last June, just after day 365. I got mad at Days soon thereafter because I had a drink. Tried to ignore the one and then a few weeks later had another. It started snowballing slowly and bizarrely after that, which I want tell you about, and became a couple of months of more drinking. Uck.
True to form, drinking is an elevator that only goes down. And it does not stop on every floor. But I got off the elevator again and am now on [checks watch] day 136. I think this makes this my fourth major quit, starting in 2015. I see no reason to keep switching back and forth, but wolfie is sly, but I am aware that I have seen a lot of his bullshit and have some smarts around those fucking first drinks after a long time away (FFDALTA). And I have some things to say about the use of alcohol to avoid oneself and to avoid one’s people. (E.g., the supposedly romantic idea of “sharing a glass of wine,” and the distress among some alcohol-quitters at “never being able to” do this again, have become unintelligible to me. The only thing “shared” is the table between the people, who glass by glass put up a barrier to one another and snuggle into their individual haze.)
But I’ve been thinking for weeks about coming back and typing. So, hi!
I want to thank the people who came along and “liked” a past post during the past several months. Having those little pops of light was really nice. It meant a lot and it tugged at me to come back here.
I hope you’re well and drinking beautiful non-damaging beverages and sleeping long and deeply and waking grateful for a clear mind, to face your day whatever it contains. Tell me what’s up 🙂
