180 degrees.

Since quitting drinking, I have been hermiting a bit. My idea of fun has suddenly changed. I'm bored at most parties that I do attempt to attend. I'd way rather be home, sipping tea with my cats, surrounded by books, good music and succulent food.

Last weekend, I stayed home and did one of the weirdest things I think I've ever done. I set up the back room of my house as a sideways room. All the furniture was on its side, and I rigged up a lamp to look like it was hanging sideways. Then I just sat in my living room and stared at it for a few hours. Really satisfying, in a weird way. That same night, I rigged up a painting on my wall with invisible thread, so that the next time I have a crew of kids over, I can sneak into the other room and pull the string and the painting will move. So creepy and awesome! (Some people in my little town joke that my house is haunted since it used to be the church. I've seen some pretty eerie stuff in this house for sure, but nothing that appears to want to harm me.) A friend came over and told me that I obviously had too much time on my hands if I was doing things like setting up a sideways room just for fun. I was like, "No way man, I've got just enough time on my hands if I'm home creating art and not out drinking 16 beers acting like a brat teenager anymore."

This entry has nothing to do with anything really. Other than to say that I seem to have made it through my second summer without the sauce. Thanks to the power of prayer, and the power of finding healthy, more productive addictions. The whole time equals art equation is starting to make a whole lot of sense. Also today marks my first month off of coffee, which I drank every day starting at the age of 14. Not surprising to find that my insomnia has been finally cured. Go figure.
