Eyes Open



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I am still a work in progress and not the finished product

that any progress I make will be based on my self-honesty, open-mindedness to new concepts and my willingness to change

for the examples provided by others, without which, I would have no guidance

that I can still function reasonably well

for a funny and successful drag auction, benefitting the 2007 Houston Roundup

that I made it through the embarrasment of only talking for 35 out of the 55 minutes I was given to tell my story; I simply ran out of stuff to say (that's a first!)

If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fear.

Oh darlin', I'm sorry you ran out of stuff to say. Did you think of 100 more things as you drove home? It's always better to run short than long. I'm sorry I missed the fund raiser. I'm glad to be back.

An hour is a long time! We are so trained to do 25-35 minutes you probably have it down to a science!

Love the cartoon :)

Unfortunately, I can talk for an hour - easy. Some day I hope to be recovered enough that I have little to say. Congrats on your progress.

And thanks for the advice, I will rethink my decision to fly to work today.

I just assumed you were making up for those recently that didn't even get sober until 50-70 minutes into their story. Besides a little humility never hurt anyone.

Dear dAAve,
you said it all just fine. Pay no attention to what time it is or how long/short you spoke.

It's the meat of the talk and you had plenty of prime rib, baby.

You did just fine. I was proud mof you and I am proud for you.

Happy Monday and Blog Action Day.

I love you !!

I am looking forward to having enough recovery where I don't have much to say. I like the idea of focusing on where I am now with just a little of where I was.

Hey Dave, your talk may have been short, but it certainly was a quality talk. As usual, I enjoyed hearing you. You-re always just you.
