The other day I had the pleasure to watch Der Untergang, which tells of the last days of the Third Reich. It's quite interesting to see how Hitler goes completely off his rocker and then Goebbel's wife kill the kids, and then Goebbels shoots her then himself. Basically everyone dies, mostly via suicide. I recommend it; also there's harldy any mention of incinerating jews, which is refreshing for a movie about the Nazis.
Today I'm getting the hell out of here for the afternoon on pass with my mom. I'm getting a haircut.

The Road to Recovery

fucking hell
Please, Santa!

Well I'm almost out of this treatment center; I have 21 days of sobriety as of today. I will probably be here for Christmas, though I will be allowed to leave and spend Christmas day/eve with family. Subsequent to my release, I will move into a halfway house in the city. This is a very interesting time in my life, and I am very receptive to change. It's actually quite exciting.
I'm reading Sam Delany's Dhalgren, which is most enjoyable. Before that it was Günter Grass' Cat and Mouse, which was also good, albeit a bit weird and slow. Other things I've been reading are the Book of Job, and Alcoholics Anonymous.

My Hawai'i trip was awesome, even though we had to cut it short because I relapsed and needed to get back home and into a treatment center. It's all good, though. No worries. Just don't give me any benzodiazepines.

I wanted to be with you alone
And talk about the weather
But traditions I can trace against the child in your face
Wont escape my attention
You keep your distance with a system of touch
And gentle persuasion
Im lost in admiration could I need you this much
Oh, youre wasting my time
Youre just wasting time

Something happens and Im head over heels
I never find out till Im head over heels
Something happens and Im head over heels
Ah dont take my heart
Dont break my heart
Dont throw it away

I made a fire and watching burn
Thought of your future
With one foot in the past now just how long will it last
No no no have you no ambition
My mother and my brothers used to breathe in clean in air
And dreaming Im a doctor
Its hard to be a man when theres a gun in your hand
Oh I feel so...

Something happens and Im head over heels

And this my four leaf clover
Im on the line, one open mind
This is my four leaf clover

Head Over Heels

I want to see this

The last 12-15 hours have been glorious. I would tell you why but then that would change the tone of the blog for the worse. So I won't.

The Rosales Brothers Fence Company is picking up steam. We've got several jobs lined up and I feel good about things, even though it's hot, sweaty, dirty work. My brother Carlos has been staying with us and occasionally commuting back to Fort Worth to see his family. Pretty fun having the three brothers under one roof morning noon and night.
This fence venture could be very good for me long term. Otherwise lately I've been thinking about going back to school and getting a photography degree, becoming a photo. teacher, and having plenty of time to develop my art as a photographer. That sounds just swell. As long as there's someone to share it with...

no, tina

The company I started with my brothers is a fence company. We build and repair wood fences.
There were no hotel rooms available in New York, so our plans have changed yet again. So now we will be spending thanksgiving week on the big island of Hawaii, in Waikoloa. Roy got us a 2 br villa. The plane tickets have already been bought and we've a mustang convertible reserved. As you could imagine, I am uber excited.
