The Greater Immolation of the Sun
The Cardinal

From sunset on October 31st to sunrise on December 22nd, no alcohol has passed my lips, as I vowed. Tonight I will break this fasting with the Boy and Amulet at Cue.

It was a strange time, both difficult and easy, both revealing and mundane. I'm sure I'm the healthier for it, and have avoided at least two horrible hangovers. I feel like the fasting could continue on for some time. I think the important part is that it doesn't have to. To drink or not to drink becomes now a question of self-restraint on a personal level, instead of vows and spirits and celestial bodies in motion. A drink here will not harm me; a refused drink there will not make me any less.
