todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that the writing is on the wall (in many AA rooms)

that Step 2 as it is written contains no mention of God

that I get up on the right side correct side of the bed every day

that it's true; yes, I am gay and proud of it

To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

Mary Travers died this week at the age of 72. I loved the music of Peter Paul and Mary.

P, P & M were just wonderful!

There is some great writing on the walls in AA, isn't there?

Think, think, think
Easy Does It
First Thing's First
Let go, Let God

and so forth

Yesterday in honor of Mary Travers, I wore a blue blouse and brown slacks, reminiscent of what she wore on the album cover of "in the wind" which I stared at forever when I was a child. She was my childhood ideal of female beauty.

Thank you for being out and thank you for mentioning Mary Travers as I had not heard of her death. They were my first intro into popular music and I imagined that I could be her and sing their songs.

i, too, am gay and proud. also glad i get up on the correct side of the bed most every morning these days!

If I got up on the wrong side of the bed I would trip and fall out the window and land all wrapped up in the curtain!

Mary is now blowing in the wind. I bet that's a nice place to be.

AA and sobriety teaches us to relish in the beauty of being exactly who God meant us to be. No more shame or hiding. I like you just the way you are :o)

You're a cool dude.

I loved Peter, Paul, and Mary AND their music...and I suppose the answer IS somewhere in that wind. And now Mary is that breath of wind, that spirit which lives on.

Thank You, Dave.

I remember hearing P,P, and M in elementary school and liking it. They had great harmony. She was a lovely lady.

I like that you are comfortable with who you are. I am liking who I am more and more.
