: On my blog, I quoted author Ray Bradbury: “You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” I asked readers what word they’d use in place of “writing” to describe how they avoided being destroyed by reality. Popular responses: love, music, whiskey, prayer, dreams, gratitude, yoga. One woman testified she stayed drunk on sexting, another said “collecting gargoyles from medieval cathedrals,” and a third claimed her secret was “jumping over hurdles riding a horse.” There was even a rebel who declared she stayed drunk on writing so she could destroy reality. My question is important to meditate on. Right now, do whatever’s needed to not be messed with by reality.
