busy for a friday night



“people trying to hand out gifts and flyers”



“there’s a seating area where there are lamps, which creates a nice cafe-atmosphere”



“there’s a guy drinking out of a can of beer, just standing there, sort of looks like it’s normal [for him]”



“and i’m outside, and it’s stopped raining, and there’s a little bit of blue sky …”

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • Ooh Belle, please show us a patisserie with amazing sober treats to fantasise about. Today I had afternoon tea and cake & it was glorious. Thank you

  • Photo/audio essay at a botanical garden/butterfly observatory (?) and an audio about new life/metamorphosis/growth and being sober

  • I think you should go back to a lineup where it’s worth waiting (your choice!). I’m curious to hear/see what happens there through your eyes for the details 🙂

  • I love train stations! It’s like exciting because there’s always something going on and it also makes me feel like there’s an expectation of a new adventure….
    And that relief of it being a Friday after work …..
    Mmmmm not sure about what I’d like to hear about or see next…. I do love the patisserie places … or maybe the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower 😁
