To be somewhere

When clients talk to me about weed or alcohol, those who are moderately to highly functional are concerned about the line between enough and too much. They want to feel better in the morning but morning feel better seems in opposition to evening feel better. 

To be somewhere is to be. Present tense. The fullness of now. 


Many of these clients have practiced meditation, worked on being mindful, they know–they tell me they know.

But here comes that third or fourth glass of wine, those extra few tokes. And then without noticing they’ve crossed over the place they’ve been looking for.

To be somewhere is not easy. To be. That’s one thing. Somewhere. That’s the other.
