It may not look like it, but this is my car in a parade a couple of days ago. There's a high school band in front of us and many cars and such behind us.

that my expectations of life are few. I heard early on that my expectatons have a direct link to my serenity, so I found a way to lower my expectations of most things. Now, in my relationship with my partner, that's a different thing. I am at a loss there.
for excitement and passion in myself and others -- I love to see it!
that Mary Christine (Being Sober) ran in and actually completed her first marathon (running). She was originally a marathon drinker, has been in marathon recovery since then, is a marathon blogger and is now a running marathoner!
that I had the opportunity participate in the 50th anniversary of my high school. I drove in a small, local parade and carried the longest-serving state senator of Texas. We had a good chat and then shared a catered BBQ lunch. A lovely afternoon. I would NEVER have done this if I were still drinking!!
