hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy

I'm sitting in front of The Fortress in Alexandria, Egypt (2000 A.D.).
I was lucky enough to work there for 3+ months.

These days, I work at home staying sober through the program of Alcoholics Anonymous.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the obvious and not-so-obvious connections/relationships between all of the 12 steps of A.A.

for a very nice impromptu meeting with my sponsor

that I got to hear the story of a guy who has spent some rough months in recovery at a halfway house

that I've lost 13 pounds in the 2 months since beginning working out and adopting a new diet; 9 pounds to go to meet my ideal weight

Life is a compromise of what your ego wants to do, what experience tells you to do, and what your nerves let you do.

Dear dAAve,

You're melting in front of our eyes !

Good for you. You look good and it's obvious that you are feeling good.

I am happy for you.

Have a great day. Thanks for the pic.

Always a pleasure to visit your blog. I am promising myself that I will take a few weeks in August and just sit. I swear.

Pounds are great to loose however don't forget what matters is how wonderfully healthy & energetic you feel as a result of eating well and exercising. :)

What happens when it rains, does the castle go away, gosh I hope not.
