This is one way to begin the week ...




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that another holiday period has come and gone. I'm still sober and I bet you are too.

that my skin fits just right

that I am comfortable, even pleased, to stay at home at night. In my past life, I could not do that. I had to go out. Every night. Somewhere. Anywhere. To a bar, of course.

that I rarely go to bed with outstanding issues

that Houston's new mayor, Annise Parker, officially took office over the weekend and the world continues to revolve. She just happens to be gay.


One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody, everything, every night before you go to bed.

I am comfortable to stay home too. On New Year's Eve, we were in bed by 10:30--old farts I guess. Well, it just seemed to be more fun in bed actually.

With each year of sobriety I get more comfortable staying at home. It feels great to for life to having meaning, to feel satisfied, instead of constantly hiding or chasing.

My skin is baggy in a few areas.
