another chapter


more art from
Julian Beever

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that although Hayden goes back to Trinidad today, we remain "best friends" and look forward to many more years together -- ONLY because I am sober and have a program of recovery which begins with awareness

that we had a great dinner together last night at a small restaurant -- something we rarely do

** check it out ** THE EPICURE on West Gray

that Tab has returned as Cupcake Monkey ... Continues

that this is Day 90 as a non-smoker -- it's been easier and more pleasurable than I could have ever imagined (remember now, I smoked for 36 years, 3 packs/day and stopped cold turkey)AMAZING!

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.

I'm glad you had a good visit with Hayden. Hope he comes back soon. And big hearty congratulations on the 90 days without smoking, that is FABULOUS!

I found that best friend relationships are much more successful for me. Living with someone? FORGET IT!

It sounds like a "perfect" relationship. Exactly where it should be!

And I'm sooooooo happy to hear that you kicked smoking! You are amazing!

Really!!!
