Drinking In My Life.

Back to the writing board I come.  I've had a lot on my mind lately and this seemed like the appropriate place to try and organize my thoughts. Life is so good right now.  So good.  So good that I can't remember the last time it felt this whole.  That's quite a different perspective than…

I Welcome It.
