Today I Join "the Free"

Intoxication is an antidote to cognitive control, a way to temporarily hamstring that opponent to creativity, cultural openness, and communal bonding...

Dionysus appeals to the more ancient, primitive regions of our brain, those dedicated to sex, emotions, movement, touch...

We need to become looser - one of Dionysus' alternative names in Latin was Liber, "The Free." 

From Drunk: How We Sipped, Danced, and Stumbled Our Way to Civilization by Edward Slingerland.

Today I intend to be part of "the free" - that's to say I plan to drink.
