Spiritual Sobriety – An Introspective: Prologue

One of the finer points of The Zephyr Lounge is that it is a haven for my opinions and beliefs, and how they pertain to popular culture and current events. After some deliberation, and a conversation I had with my wife last night, I have decided to create a series of posts chronicling how I got to this point, a mentality that I refer to as “spiritual sobriety”, which I will write in a very confessional way. As if I were talking to a priest, I suppose.

These stories will probably present me in a somewhat negative light, but I feel they are relevant to understanding what I write about and why. They’re a chronicle of a time when I lived in a drug-induced haze, riding a river of liquor here and there, and making decisions that were reflective of such carelessness. In a sense, I’m writing memoirs.

With these posts, I’m also going back to my old setup, and including quotes at the beginning of each post that pertain to the information. Needless to say, I enjoyed doing that, and have no idea how or why I deviated from it.

Anyway, since there is a lot of storytelling to do, I’m going to keep this brief. I hope that these posts will help to better understand why I think the way I do and why I choose the topics I choose to write about. I think these will better help my readers follow The Zephyr Lounge beyond just the words that are written, but what they mean.

Thank you, and cheers to you all.

Ah, the About Me section - social networking's excuse for you sounding like an elitist prick. Hmm... what to say? What to say?
