another example!

hey kids, my monthly type of post here. i think that keeping in touch really helps me keep my new life rolling. well, my 79 yo father passed away this week last. he just got sick and sicker. being sober for this helped me realize again that it is not about me. i am not the center of the universe in how leon's death reflects upon our baby blue earth. i have obligations as a deadhead to extend my hand to his wife, my drunken and distraut sister and who else may be somewhat shattered. i recently sent him a copy of acoustic reckoning live 1980, whew. i recall calling him on father's day 1988 before i headed up to alpine valley that sunday. perhaps that knockin' encore can shatter my frickin' bones inna commemorative way that the gd do do so well. i am so lucky to be sober to assess things in a tight arrangement (the good old grateful dead). thanks for any meditations and prayers, but i do not type this in order to create any excuse to use - it ain't about me! have a grateful day! peace, shack

I went to the Phil show in Penns Peak (excellent show! killer 3rd set!!) and the Wharf Rat table sure was there! When I first went to shows in my early sobriety, it was tougher. The more time I have the easier it gets. Finding the table with the yellow balloons helps becasue it reminds me I'm not the only one out there. And this forum does too.

Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!
