And now we begin ... 20TEN


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I don't make resolutions at the New Year; I make them when and as necessary during the course of any given time period.
But I call them decisions or commitments.

that I woke up sober this morning and I'm getting ready to go to my regular 6:30am AA meeting

that I'll attend 2 more AA meetings today before some people have even awakened from last night

that I've been given all I need by following some basic life principles


Be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur.

I like that saying about one's prime, as I consider myself a late bloomer (as opposed to slow learner!)

Best New Year wishes to you, Dave.

I agree, I like the word commitments. I was at an open AA mtg just before xmas or maybe it was thanksgiving and the point was made that it IS just another day, I took it as any day is both small and big at the same time. Hope you are feeling better.

Yo Dave!
I've enjoyed playing catch up on your blog.
I see that you are still sober, still going to Lambda, still weird, and I'm glad you did not change while I was gone. Especially the weird part.

Dave, thanks for all that you have provided here in the past year. I have laughed, thought about, been inspired by what you've written
