  • (((((((Pledgers))))))))) Here's my promise not to drink or drug for this 24!

    My quiet hour this morning reminded me of the rewards of not being so constantly serious always brings.

    Refusal to move away from such seriousness is what keeps the serious lingering so long. Sure we have to deal with matters that are serious and definitely at hand during parts of some days. A deadline is a deadline and a problem is still a problem. But the best deadline we can have is a set time to deal with matters or things and then do or think upon them no more. We are empowered to say, "At ___ o'clock, all is done that can reasonably be done and now is the time for lightening things." Every day has two places...the one of responsibility and tasking, and the other being the place where enjoyments and contentment matters live. There is room for both if we tell it to be so.

    We can easily waste so much time and energy better spent upon the more relaxed and enjoyable when we keep a mindset of seriousness and urgencies in our pockets hovering like dark clouds over our every waking moments.
    Do what needs doing...share what needs sharing.....but have a stopping place for it all each day. We can always grasp our tasks and importants again tomorrow if need be.
    Let's do it again today together gang! Big Hugs on Everyone! thomas

where they found us three days later
when somebody complained about the smell
we died against bridge abutments
and nobody knew if it was suicide
and we probably…

  • ...I get to take long walks in the forest that always reminds me that what is good and so abundant does not involve gadgets, things, or chasing stuff.
  • I have some free time to take care of tasks around the house.
  • Recovery is free and freeing.
