I’m approaching (Approaching? Today’s the day!) the fourth anniversary of my recovery, and having neglected my writings here as life on it’s own terms has flowed around me, and wanting to commemorate a pretty cool occasion marking my continued sobriety.

I found some software to do photo mosaic. We can now peer into my mind – so to speak <smile>.
My happy face and Sampson T. Dog
I’m starting to believe it! That I’m not using cocaine and Bacardi 151 while awake. Pretty cool that today marks my three year anniversary of kicking the Rum and Coke and Coca habit that rode my back for eight years straight 24/7.
In a sea of billions one, now two or many more souls laid bear. Glad to know that the argument I have within is probably part of the human condition rather than a deArangement exclusive of my mind. A habit, whose roots are long forgotten, of telling myself “You’re no good” is occasionally argued rationally by my blurting out at myself assertively that “yes I am.” Continue reading “Bear souls”
Celebrities and addiction
Earlier I blogged a very few words and embedded a story about Charlie Sheen. Subsequently I’ve seen so much traffic on Television, Twitter, Facebook – just generally in life. It occurred to me that I hadn’t noticed any discussion about celebrities that have kicked an active addiction into Recovery (working) 🙂 I thought to myself: “I should bitch (blog) about that!” but I continued on with whatever life on life’s terms I was currently involved in. This morning a buddy sent me a picture that motivated me to do a bit of research.

I am approaching the one year anniversary of my first day of sobriety which occurred on June 24, 2008. There are time periods we remember in life as markers of events and or the passage of time. Often these times may mark a renewal of thoughts or be the impetus for professional or spiritual growth.
I recently downloaded and purchased avs4you video editing software. My first creation while learning how edit with the software was a little presentation for my Recovery Working (RW) project. That’s a business that I’m developing. I’m learning how to make a business plan for RW at the Center for Entrepreneurship at Spokane Community College. This is my attempt to post the video, or any video for that mater, in a blog, well unless you include live delivery via ISDN of blues music using a streaming server about ten years ago in a previous life as an Internet Service Provider.

Last time I did any video editing was an AB roll on an Amiga with a Video Toaster and three Sony SVHS VCRs with SMPTE time code. I like non linear editing.
