Ya man. I'm back!

I have been in Trinidad and Tobago for the past 11 days visiting my friend Hayden. This picture was taken from a small boat that took me out snorkelling one afternoon. Hayden wasn't feeling well so he stayed behind.

More pictures of this event tomorrow. Maybe.

I am glad to be back and have missed the blogosphere.
Reading and writing. Thanks for all of your wonderful comments; I really do appreciate them.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

to be back from Trinidad & Tobago safe, sober and (relatively) sane

for the experience of going to AA meetings in other countries; the people may be different, but alcoholism is not

that Winter is over and now it's Spring! My character defects are in full bloom. It's so nice to have Twelve Steps to try to live by, especially Step 3 which continues to save me from me each and every time I remember to use it.

that a doctor was on the plane yesterday when a passenger had a medical event (details not known)

that I totally surprised Hayden with this trip; he was in shock and speechless (very uncommon) when I showed up in his face; my plan worked to perfection!

that I have always been comfortable driving on the wrong side of the road, even when I didn't do it on purpose (Trinidad is a former British colony, thus they drive on the wrong side)
