Extremists think that 'communication' means agreeing with them. ~Leo Rosten

Today I am grateful…

  • that I have my first piece in a show in a New York City gallery. It is a donation piece to the Postcards from the Edge,supporting Visual Aids.
  • that most of my car trips are ten minutes or under
  • that I strive for contentment, but there are times my mind wants to complicate the most simple of things
  • that any hiding out today is relatively small compared to the elaborate isolating behaviors of my past. Many things diminish in importance when exposed to the light.
  • that you will have a tremendous day because you want to

Even in sobriety, we have to guard against the impossible dreams we nourished while drinking. Again and again, we must remind ourselves that sober living is based on reality. Even reality, however, can have its miracles. I'll keep my dreams alive today, but I'll make sure that they have a good foundation in reality. ~Walk in Dry Places

I like you're smaller font and I like the fact that you're trips are less than 10 minutes and I like the fact that you don't hide out too much but mainly, I like the fact that you have a piece hangin' in NYC.

I mean larger font. Silly me.

Congrats on the NYC show! And love the palm reminder: What lengths am I prepared to go to reach the sunlight of the spirit? Yep. Couldn't imagine before. Can now. Have a great weekend.

I hope YOU have a tremendous day. The Visual Project looks awesome. I wish we could participate online but I didn't see how. I would love to be able to see the donated works up close.

Happy Saturday.

I wish my trips were less than 10 minutes. Most days my trips are 40 minutes to work and then sometimes another 40-50 minutes to a meeting. But the destination is worth the carbon footprint.
