I try to grow a beard every couple of years
I guess now would be a good time to check in: I’ve been sober for more than a year now. Feels great. I’ve got a good life, a bike, independence, a job im excited about, and the time to roam. Im also working on not keeping people at arm’s length. I keep trying to hang it up, but every time I think im done something has me putting this coat back on. I guess i’ve spoken to enough people about their own problems, drinking and otherwise, over the last year or so to realize i may still have something to contribute. Whether it is music or the self publication of my less melodic thoughts or both, well I don’t know how to go about starting to do either on my own. I guess I need to shut up and do it. Finished a full band kind of song. Hopefully that will see the light of day soon but I keep losing motivation to keep prying full band stuff out, so i might just make something super low budget on my own. Over the years I’ve tried to pick up running as a source of physical fitness, but I would always skip a few weeks ahead to a point where the training challenged me right away. As i’m approaching running my first 5K, im seeing that slow and steady will generally get you there. Life. I’ve taken my time and I wil probably continue to do so but i’m going to try not to be such a stranger. Let’s talk soon. Also feel free to get in touch if you can draw or you want to work together on music or ride bikes or go camping. The more people on a campsite, the cheaper and more fun it gets. Now go outside.
