My Current State of Mind

by Bill Brenner on February 1, 2013

Please indulge me as I share my current state of mind with you. Oh, yes, I have all kinds of things floating around in this brain of mine this morning.

Mood music:


  • I’ve often been asked if the anti-depressants I take have any unpleasant side effects. Not really, but I’ve discovered the hard way that if you don’t chase the pills down with enough liquid and they get stuck in your throat, the result is the worst heartburn you’ll ever experience.
  • Today’s my mother’s birthday, and while we haven’t talked in a long time, I’d like to wish her a happy birthday. Happy birthday, Ma.
  • I loved winter and cold weather as a kid. As I get older, I appreciate the freezing temperatures less and less. March 21 can’t come fast enough, though around here, the cold will last well beyond that. As it stands, I’m having quite a fist-fight with Winter Bill, and I’m getting sore and bloody. All the same, I expect to finish winter still standing.
  • I’m getting increasingly addicted to playing guitar, and I’m not the least bit sorry for it. Truth be told, there are days when guitar practice is the only think keeping me sane. Last night I learned the fine art of hammer ons and pull offs¬†and the intro to Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.” My head is still spinning. But it beats the hell out of drinking, binge eating and OCD overdrive.

Overall, I’d say I’m doing fine this Friday. Off to face the busy day.
