No, Actually, You DON’T Get It!

Alcoholics, Addicts and a few others don’t seem to fully comprehend the fact that their existence on our planet is temporary. As in – there is no more waking up. No more coming around. No more snapping back into it. No more pulling it together. No more chances. My age definitely has something to doContinue reading “No, Actually, You DON’T Get It!”

You Have 9 Minutes Left On The Clock Of Your Existence.

Nine meager minutes! When I’m on the Elliptical and still have another nine minutes to go – that feels like a freakin’ eternity, but if I had only nine minutes left before the alarm rang on my life?

That’s it. That’s all I ever had to do. Every day. I didn’tContinue reading “I Was Too Busy Looking Out The Window”

Aliens Are Here

At least they were in my dream. I remember that at first everyone was afraid and hiding, partly due to the fact that these aliens were invisible. We knew they were in the air, but we couldn’t see them. When they arrived, they turned the sky a light pale pink color. And they weren’t justContinue reading “Aliens Are Here”

Our AV Never Dies

It just quiets down sometimes. This is the conclusion I’ve arrived at. I read or hear about folks accumulating decades of sobriety, only to cave one day for – essentially – nothing. All that time. All that hard work – POOF – left in the past. Once a person relapses – that restarts the sobrietyContinue reading “Our AV Never Dies”
