I can't hide any more.

see the owl?

today I am grateful & thankful

for these excerpts from the Big Book (Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th edition, pages 350-352) ...
"I tried to hide my drinking by going places where I was unlikely to see anyone I knew."
I had "excuses for trips in order to drink without restraint."
"Never having enough, always craving more, the obsession for alcohol gradually began to dominate all my activities, particularly while traveling.  Drink planning became more important than any other plans."
Those concepts describe me way too much.
Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.

Your title scared me when I first saw it. I wondered what on earth you could be hiding. Glad to see it is only an owl.

I still like to go to places where I am unlikely to see anyone I know. Better think about that....
