Update Update

I am doing well, though not yet doing good.
My daughter from Eugene was in town most of last week and i spent some time each day with both my daughters -- and they fed me!!.  Younger daughter bore a nice letter from my  oldest grandchild.  How long has it been since recieved a real personal letter with a real signature?  40 years?  I understand that younger daughter has been in communication with "old girlfriend's" son.  OMG!

My neck will be x-rayed again on Tuesday, so maybe i can get rid of the cervical collar or whatever they call my "yolk."  I sleep poorly in it and that is starting to get to me.  I am becoming known for my Hawaiian shirts (which i borrowed from my son-in-law and are the only things which will cover my neck--I look like a combination of   Igor, the "monster," and Elvis.

For a program that offers practically everything and requires practically nothing, my 12-Step program has been keeping more busy than i want to be.  Newcomers are flooding into meetings, i have no idea why.  Opiod crisis?  Spiritual awakening?  I have returned to this fellowship mostly for the emphasis on "prayer and meditation." but ironically, i seem to find both activities more difficult than before.  And as for contemplation-- (sentence left incomplete).

This morning i spent  a little time with some Taoist poetry and some 12-step material that has helped me in the past.  Wonderful  How can i not start every morning this way.

Peace, love, silence, stillness, beauty. acceptance, and emptiness.^
