October 6 - It is your soul's only desire to turn its grandest concept about itself into its greatest experience. Meditations from Conversations with God, Book 1, page 22
Hi, Alkies. I usually can make a comment about the quote for the day, but today I am at a loss. My soul's only desire? I am going to have to really mull this one over. Maybe, just maybe, I am or have really lost it. Or it could be that I am just totally over analyzing it. My shrink in Los Angeles always said I do over analyze. I'll just have to get a round tuit.
Today is the first day after a really wonderfully enjoyable weekend. Sat nite I had two parties to attend. I felt like such a socialite. The first one was at Daave and Hayden's open house. Man, they just pulled the stops out. I've seen the house since they had some walls knocked out and sort of redid a portion of the floor plan. I watched it grow. Walls went up, tile went in and was then ripped out. I really watched the birth of this place. I have seen it as they furnished it so carefully. I continually thought that this is a nice place. Sat nite it was like the good looking guy you see every day and then you go out and he is in an Armani suit and is just fucking gorgeous. Well, that is like their place - it was very nice, but Sat nite it was complete and dressed to the nines. Fucking fabulous. Very contemporary, tasteful, and not overdone. It was understated elegance and beauty. Oh and the party was very enjoyable also.
Then this man about town went to another AA's twentieth birthday celebration. So many of the people there had been at D & H's housewarming. I saw a few people I had not seen in awhile and had some wonderful conversations.
I am so lucky to have been invited to share in the lives of two households of my friends. And it was two homes of sober people. Yes, we do insist in enjoying life. Sober. And it just does not get any better than that.
Tonight I am grateful for:
God, My Higher Power
Mamie, my Schnauzer
The start of a new week.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.
