It's been a backslide weekend. I'm still sober... so it wasn't that kind of backslide. It was my health. I am having serious problems urinating again, and I woke up this morning with a rash that's oozing blood and pus over my entire chest.
The weird thing is I am not depressed. Here's the reason.
I couldn't sleep the other night, and had the radio on. And heard the most beautiful song I have heard in a very long time, if ever. A rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole. I defy anyone who hears this beautiful rendition, not to feel happy, to feel hope, albeit sadness for such a talented singer who left this world too early.
It got me through this weekend, and I don't feel so sad and alone now. I hope it does that with anyone reading this post.
Bless you IZ, where ever you are.
