Oof. Man... I'm really feeling it now, too.

Yesterday after work, I did some heavy work in the yard on the new retaining wall and patio I am building. Got good and sweaty.

And then sat in my back yard for probably 5 hours, getting good and drunk, alternating between listening to Motorhead loud in my headphones and binging dumb hot-rod building shows on Netflix.

Today I feel better than I have in weeks.

At some point, I have to stop worrying about the world, and just let it go. About two months ago it was a handful of psychedelic mushrooms that gave my brain a break. Last night it was whisky.

And I'm ok with that... once a month, or so. Any more than that and I'm gonna start worrying about whether it is becoming a crutch rather than a tool... but I'm pretty far from that right now.

Let's see how long this escape from World Exhaustion lasts this time...
