All Is Fine, for a Moment Long Ago

Today, my charges leapt
out, more than one
flash, confidence, an
unforced smile, brief
contentment, old
shoes on friendly
grit, grinning, drained
of defects.

    So well put…I like the image of the old shoes on friendly grit. I’m always happy to see your comments that remind me to visit you. And yes, related to your comment…it does work, IF your work it. My mom, of course, no long goes to meeting but for years she spend hours each day reading the Big Book and an assortment of AA related meditation books. She called it her snake bite kit. She is no longer able to do even that. I guess there are different ways of working it as people grow old. Be well, Carl.

      Thank you so much for your comment, Victoria. At some point, after all of the work, I believe we get to sit still and enjoy the benefits of wisdom. I sense your mother has given you many gifts.
