THE LAST PAGE

I found an old notebook from 2012. It was a morbid haze & truly scary year for me. The last page of the notebook had a chicken-scratched message to myself. The grey memories came back in a flurry upon re-reading it today. I’m pretty sure I wrote this somewhere in Germany really drunk & a few steps from ending it all. So blessed & secure reading it now that I’ve fought through the darkest of mazes. It sent a strong reminder. This letter was the start of my road back to loving myself.

THE LAST PAGE

I awoke in a daze. My rest interrupted by the slight confusion of what the previous night entailed. What stories did I so eagerly tell in my release of inhibitions? What kind of superpowers did I miraculously, but falsely attain by clearing two Merlot bottles of their insides? What new regrets could possibly be added to the arsenal I’ve already so cleverly adopted? There’s nothing more waking than the sudden surge of apologetic rememberance as the slew of inebriated, somehow forgotten moments flow back into your consciousness. I often wonder what sickness I have taken under my wing that has lead me to those many re-occurring morning hazes. I often wonder where time has gone, while totally overlooking my purpose of ignoring where it went in the first place. Now is when I strengthen my memory by limiting this repeated ignorance fortifying the mind with experience. Experience not plainly experienced, but experience remembered…

Merry Red-Hot Xmas Eve.

• THE BEGIN AGAIN •

I’m treading ever-so carefully into a loving place. Consciously throwing an unrelenting cold-shoulder towards the dark rooms I’ve existed in for far too long. Nothing beats the innocent energy that re-invention brings along by the hand. Everything depends & relies on constant & persistent make-overs, do-overs, or try-agains. It’s time to live once more, until the next life begins again.
