My favorite Sunday night place-to-be is The Second Road aka TSR and here is WHY:
Get together with us in the chat room on Sunday night, at 8pm, to discuss Gratitude. Bring your personal experiences, musings, and questions. Our hostess is Ms. Hen, aka the Frugal Hen, Betty.
1958 was a drunk year, best forgotten by me, and anyone who knew me then.....
I can not write, for I am without words
I Cannot paint, for I am without imagination.
I cannot love, for I am without a companion,
But I can drink, for this bottle is my own.
Cannot eat, no appetite
Can't sleep, no peace
I can not work, for ambition has left me
But I can drink, for this bottle is my own
I cannot see, I am blind
I cannot hear, I am deaf
I cannot breathe, I am choking
I can not live any more
For this bottle, my own, is now empty.
--Steve E Sep 7, 1958
NOTE: It would be 16 years more of heavy drinking and downhill life, before I could put down the bottle for the last time. March 18, 1974 I shook myself into my first AA meeting, and met you peeps, and met God..for the first time.
Peeps, it is not my anniversary. On the other hand, EVERY day is Anniversary day, when you been where I came from.
Sober. Peace. Love.
