the more things change ...


LAST WEEK IN COSTA RICA ...
From our gay hotel, we went on a group excursion to the rainforest. The event is called a Canopy Safari. Each person (we were all gay) was fitted with a harness and we rode from tree to tree via wire cables. The modern version of TARZAN and JAMES. We also repelled down 150' tall trees.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the simplicity of Step 8 (as pointed out by Dennis R)

that I made it through yesterday without having or even wanting a drink or cigarette (it was just one of those days when my thinking was all wrong)

that although my perception is that most of my few friends have deserted me -- I know (intellectually) that this is very likely not the case, so I don't have to act on this concept immediately; I'll just wait and see what happens.

for my sponsor who can be brutally honest with me because he knows me. He knows me because I have always been brutally honest with him.

for an afternoon of shopping therapy (MasterCard must love me!)

I've seen that being done on t.v. and it looks like a blast. Maybe I will put that on my list of things to do before I die but I don't think I'll ever make it to a rain forest. Love you dAAve.

That puts my puney little ROPES course to shame that I did a few years ago. Yo Mr. Dave...might want to get out of your head...it doesn't sound very user friendly up there. Your taste for adventure goes all the way down to your spirit doesn't it? Your posts reveal that.

I FREAKED OUT when forced onto a ropes course in a leadership training a few years ago. I don't think I would enjoy your rain forest excursion.... glad you did though.

Damn that Scott--I, too, was gonna go somewhere in that vicinity!
I would have loved to have been a fly on a tree when that forest was full of gay men -- what a riot!
Thanks for everything you share, dAAve, and I bet you have more than a few friends.
Peace,
Scout
