Today I’ve drawn sober breaths for 7 straight years in a row. 🎉
The picture is from December 2011, the last one from the drinking era. I never wanted to look at the camera. Pictures have a way of capturing our soul, documenting for future generations. For good or for bad.
Today, I’m sure I don’t smell the same.
I am, however, wearing the same White Sox hoodie this very moment.
And Maggie’s as cute as a weeble-wobble. 😊

Do you know what I really hate? It’s when Maggie and I make and then have a nice dinner, and after the kitchen all cleaned up and make my way to the couch, and I get all comfy under the blanket, and fire up my next episode of Star Trek TNG… and then I realize I left my ecig halfway on the other side of the galaxy.

And then there was that one time that Jimi told me “love is an action.”
Another one of those conversations that changed everything.
When two people first meet they feel a certain kind of love, a romantic high that’s unparalleled. We’re on top of the world and nothing can touch us. And then as the relationship goes on that high fades because they always do.
And many a good people have said that the love is gone from their marriage or relationship or whatever. Unfortunately, that’s how love works. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s not that we didn’t do something right. It’s because romantic love, in the beginning, is designed to stimulate us into loving action.
“Here’s how good life can be with another.”
Life gives us a golden ticket. If I just put that golden ticket into my pocket it’ll lose its luster. It’ll get crumpled. Love’s an amusement park full of thrills and chills so I need to get my ass out there, run away with a beautiful girl, and ride the rides.
Because If I’m not feeling loving all I need to do is act lovingly.
