The leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter……” Courtesy of the Bangles.

Weaving time in a tapestry
Won’t you stop and remember me…….”
2015 has starated off with quite the bang for my blog. Writer’s block! Yes, that must mean I’m actually trying to think up crap to write. If I must truly have to start thinking what is coming up next, it’s gonna be a long year.
Now that I have over 50 something subscribers, I feel the need to impress each and every single one of you every time the ink hits the paper. Oh, the pressure, the agony, the pain of wanting to be the dog whisper, captain recovery, the Rock God! I have news for you, it ain’t gonna happen. What is going to happen is I do my best to make you laugh, think for yourself, and educate on the little facts I do know. I also hope, in return, that you have questions you might want to ask me. Can we say, more interactive? Let’s make this the best year yet, shall we?
Ok, I’m going to stop thinking, and start breathing as we shall see where this adventure takes us. Until next time….
When we get sober, we do new things while discovering a whole new way of living. For me, it’s going to the movies.
Many moons ago, I had a massive panic attack in a movie theater. This literally made my mind crippled. That attack (which may of been drug induced as I went to this Austin Powers flick on methamphetamine after being up for several days) was the primary reason I stopped going to movies for over seven years.
Today, with beautiful sobriety under me, I can actually walk in a movie theater and not freak the fuck out. And, here’s the kicker. I go to the movies alone. Although I would love a partner to go with, I am completely comfortable going alone. Going to the movies again is one of the promises that sobriety gives me.
So, here are my top three flick picks. What’s yours?
1) Gone Girl. Nothing beats watching Neal Patrick Harris getting his head sliced off.
2) Lucy. This film makes you really think. Plus, Scarlett Johansson is easy on the eyes.
3) The Giver. Great book. Great film. Plus, Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges (The Dude) are two of the best actors in the business.
