Had a pretty long day at work today. I work retail as a day gig. I was in a pretty bad mood all day that I'm only now getting over slightly. Dark moods have overtaken me in the last few days. I've been thinking alot about the fragility of life especially since my friend Rick Burton died august eleventh. I am, however, prone to these moods once every couple of months. I should just ride them out knowing they will pass, but it's rough not getting sucked into the vortex. I've had a real yearning for a cold beer the last couple of days, but I know for me a cold beer is never a cold beer; it's a ton of beer.
