A few weeks ago I had a rough night. The next day I decided it was necessary give up alcohol for a while. I’ll go without for one hundred days, then see how I feel and reevaluate.
I’m tracking my progress. I put this heart up across from my bed so it’s the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see at night. I’m not a dramatic person, and I’m sure this seems silly, but it helps. I feel good, and whaddya know? I’m getting a ton of work done!
I practice guitar a bit. Then I head to Williamsburg where my friends are having a party/show for their recording label. My band is scheduled to play three songs. And we do.
There’s a lot of catered food and I dig in, eating roast beef, grilled veggies, and a section of a six-foot sub. Also, a cup of tea.
A very nice evening.
