It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

In Plain Sight

I'm still alive and well after 103 days in rehab. I move from the programme to a support house on March 17th. Thus far the journey has been difficult. Getting to the core of who you are and what has been haunting you since childhood takes time. It was a common enough story and I am grateful for the effort and time others spent helping me begin the work. True, I have a little knowledge, and a few tools, but the work will be ongoing. In the meantime I am sober and that's enough for now.
