When You're 60 Does The Year Still Start Today?

Funny how long it takes old habits to die. Or to survive, never dying. My boys haven't been in while for a while and I haven't for an eon. Seriously, even if you count law school which I finished when I was 31, I've lived close to half my life since then. But September will always seem like a starting point, second only to January 1.

It is. It's my first day of abstinence from stupid computer games. It's my 258th day of abstinence from compulsive overeating. While I have the neat program up, it's my 22,137th day of being alive. Geesh, that's old.

So. I start again, one day at a time. It's a good start. A good time in my life. I am 90 pounds smaller than the biggest I ever was, which makes me well over half way to losing half of myself. The physical part I'm deleting is more than made up for by the peace of mind and joy I've found.

I'll finish a rewrite of my new book To Dingwall, Y'all today. I've learned lots about Viking history, the rodent coypu known in the USA as a nutria, horses, Scotland, and myself in the writing.

You probably can tell I'm writing as a diversion from stupid computer games. While I'm no longer relying on will power to stop, they do leave a vacuum. Maybe you'll see me here more often. Maybe next time I'll have something to say. Keep coming back?
