Today marks my 2 year anniversary of sobriety.

I've tried to celebrate each year with a sort of ritual long walk. With a clear destination. A sort of "up to the mountain" moment, if you will.

So today I walked the entire length of Manhattan island. From the Bronx to the Battery. After 17.4 miles, watching the sun set over the Statue of Liberty was deeply satisfying.

Our bodies are capable of so much. We should never forget it. Even the weakest among us can do so much. See, feel, think, laugh, cry, suffer, exult...

I don't post here much anymore, but this community got me through the early days. Thank you.

One day at a time, tomorrow is another one.
