Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once your grow up. ~Pablo Picasso

Today I am grateful...
  • to be involved in life
  • for fun art fellowship last night
  • for those who relapse and make it back, so I don't have to do the research myself
  • that I am often repelled by what fascinates the general public
  • for the lives I touch and the lives that touch me

No person whose fear reaches a panic stage can effectively control his or her actions.We cannot expect sobriety alone to make us exempt from fear. What it can do is give us an ability to handle our fear constructively. ~Walk in Dry Places

I have to smile about not doing the research yourself. How true--I'm glad that I didn't have to use the scientific method on alcoholism/addiction. My evidence was all anecdotal.
