IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

05.16.09

The computer was acting up this morning so I downloaded CCleaner and cleaned it up, had coffee and said my morning prayers. But I didn't have my usual quiet time when I read my meditations and write my gratitude list.

I went to Lambda Center to do my usual bookkeeping (I love that bookkeeping has three double letters together!) and met with my sponsor. We discussed the story in the back The Keys to the Kingdom. She so beautifully describes the 'what it was like, what happened and what it is like now'.

Afterwards I went to lunch with a fellow alkie, we both had the economic stimulus special at our local gay eatery--$8 for a flat iron steak and fries. Yum! We had some bleu cheese alongside. She had TWO stimulus brownies (with ice cream, $1 each).

My jaw is achy and I am a little off center. I have been a little off this entire week, nothing major at all and sometimes hardly noticeable. And certainly nothing like the above photo. Maybe it has to do with Mercury being so retrograde, maybe it's just that time of the month. Anyway, it will pass. And you won't miss my gratitude list too much today.

What, may I ask, is quiet time? It has been at least 27 yrs since I have had any of that on a regular basis. *sigh*

what exactly is that picture about?

the retrograde, is making me tired.

At times I feel off center, but find it hard to identify why. So confusing. Love the pic, is that you home or an installation??

This is the first time I can remember you not having a gratitude list. No big deal, I'll be OK;)

Scott W said...

Findon, that is a photo I snagged off the Internets...

Wow, when I saw that painting, I thought that perhaps an asteroid had hit your house. Glad that you are okay. And yes, I did miss your list today but figured that the stimulus special was something to be grateful for.
