The universe was never bad to me. I was just really ungrateful and self-absorbed. Something shifted in me today (or was it yesterday).
Nothing major, really, just, well, clarity came through the usual, slightly illegitimate means, and I figured I might, somewhere down the road, need the help of substances to quiet my conscious thinking mind.
My mind is just too damn chatty.
(Note on August 12, 2012: Okay, you'll find this a little weird but this was posted originally on my Tumblr. I'm doing some online housekeeping and I figured I'd leave my Tumblr out of the drama and corral introspective shit here. I left my blog last August of 2009 but I've reemerged somewhere between that and this.)
