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

YOU AND ME-ANDERINGS...
Now I am reading that several of the (AA/Alanon) bloggers who so warmly welcomed me here 21 months ago, are considering leaving this end of the blog world. These peeps are not regular visitors to steveroni, but I read and benefit almost always from their writings. And YOU and I will sorely miss their unselfish contributions to these blogs.
The tone of "our" blog community has changed somewhat, and I fear I have contributed to that change. But those half-dozen who have, or may be moving on, are ones who have daily held the line for excellence, integrity, humility, truth, faith, hope, and in this way have helped SO many of the rest of us. This is SO true!
God is in charge. GOD is GOoD!
In another topic, I wish to thank ALL/EVERYONE who yesterday commented their prayers, love and support for me and my family, having lost N. to cancer. It was another of those days, seldom experienced by me, which show me that "something" in Alcoholics Anonymous WORKS! because I did not drink. How about that?
It is a marvelous thing to be so thoughtfully remembered and cared about by so many AA Peeps. I am sure we can go anywhere in the world and find immediate friends, and friendliness, understanding and love, like nothing I have seen before, or since.
One more thing--personal: Doctor exam today revealed to me that my cancer is still in remission, and I am otherwise quite healthy for a 76-year-old man. And Peeps, I feel GoooooD!
Good enough to stay sober today.
Can you do that with me?
And let us live, and be filled with reconciliation and love.
It really IS a .www, or as I have heard it "What a Wonderful World!"
Sober 36 years (March 18, 1974), I am a former symphony violinist who loves prose, poetry, drawing, music (of course!) art of many genres and philosophies.
Here I will write about my life, thoughts, addiction recovery, and almost anything else of which I know very little.
Laughter, happiness, peace, enthusiasm and love shape my life these days.
If you enjoy reading my stuff, please be welcomed here.
If you do not enjoy, please be nice and leave the room quietly--grin!!
