44 days to go…

I’m still not 100% sure the gubmint will let me leave.  After all these years, this tired old ghost continues to haunt me.  I have done nothing wrong; committed no crime; answer to no man, but still the Fear stalks my thinking.  Time to let that go as well.

If the river don’t rise I’ll be in Greece in 44 days.

Mom is doing well as are my personal relationships.  My AA work is solid and I am now the HMB Area 48, District 17 Secretary.  You all can look that up in your AA folders and find out more if you wish.

Winter is almost gone.  I can feel it.

Johnnyboy is a queer recovering alcoholic. For the moment he is also the primary caregiver for his mother, who suffers from age-related cognitive impairment. She is happy as a lark and is surrounded by a crew of sober women which gives him the freedom he needs to get out of town. When he is not at home in Somewheresville, he is searching out the proper path to travel for happiness and joy. He is a photographer who believes in the digital age, but feels that film is still where its at. He has a darkroom and works in it. He is single and is in remarkably great physical condition for all the damage he has submitted his body to. His cardiologist is very happy. Johnnyboy is over the age of 35.
