A principle to learn from the sly fox during a fox hunt:

When you are in deep trouble, look straight ahead, look like you know what you're doing, keep your mouth shut, and say nothing!

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have so much to be grateful for, although I have had a difficult time writing about those things lately

for the one hour that 6 recovering alkies spent discussing the merits of Tradition Six, which reminded me to say a prayer for the dozens of former Lambda Center members who chose to go elsewhere simply because others voted to allow a CMA meeting

for some insight and good advice from my therapist regarding ways to prevent isolating

for a very productive day and the hope and chance of another one today (for me, this means being the best I can be throughout my day and not regressing to my selfish ways)

Etiquette means behaving yourself a little better than is absolutely essential.

Noor Azman Othman GBE said...

Ditto Scott,

I still can't figured it out. Sometime we Malaysian are backdated in the knowledge of abbreviation!

Anyway, love your post.

Love your sly fox and your actions of praying for those who chose to leave your group. Walkin da walk you be!
