DRINKING ALCOHOL TAUGHT ME HOW TO FLY
THEN IT TOOK AWAY THE SKY

THINK THINK THINK






AS A MAN THINKETH?

Peeps:  I DO apologize for the fact that my next blog will be Thursday October 15 (or before?)...There is a matter to which I must attend.

Meanwhile, today is Sunday, and the following is for you Peeps.  It is meant to be happy words, so please read it in that mode:

this morning
I sped through wisps
of flimsy gauze-like curtain
which actually were mist-clouds
hiding in a nectar-like air
hanging from above
And I thought of you

In the  meeting
where I sat in silence
imagination soaring
to the place where
clouds begin
where space is also a creation
I thought of you

after, in a choir
singing a new song
of happiness and joy
and to God, PRAISE!
bells ringing
I, singing loud and long
still thinking of you

later this same day
a feast with family
a chat with blog-friends
silent moment between
in which I listed
possible owed amends.
in my mind and heart--you

one fine day in May
earth-life for me will stop
suddenly as begun
and as this event happens
an inevitable occurrence
songs shall all been sung
as I remember forever...YOU

--Steve E   10/10/2009


Peeps, you KNOW
I love you all
No Matter What

PEACE!

Steve, I have been reading your blog posts over the course of several days. I wanted to thank you for sharing your thoughts and information about alcoholism. My youngest daughter is an alcohol abuser. For the first time, she is attending AA meetings. I will attend some of them with her. We both need inspiration, and more importantly, education and goals. I will be stopping by to read more of your future posts. Blessings :)

Hopefully this is the May of the years to come... It "may" happen soon it "may" happen a long time from now... it "may" be when we expect, it "may" not....

One fine may...hopefully prayerfully with much distance do we reflect on that May...

Much Love!!!! ((((Hugs)))God be with you as you step away from blogging and into the business at hand :)

Hello. I am celebrating my first year as a sober alcoholic tomorrow. I found your excellent blog while googling about and I will now explore it some more. Blogging has helped me quite a lot to fight my own demons this past year and I even found my sweet girlfriend through it. She loves me in spite of my background. Myself, I blog in Swedish as I am from Finland. Keep up the struggle, mate.

Everyone wants to be remembered, to come to mind without provocation...to be that much on the edge of someone's consciousness. Lovely post.
