It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

My First Christmas

Hi everyone - this is a brief message Doug asked me to post.
I'm working hard, learning and changing. Been sober since November 11th (Remembrance Day in Canada, Armistice Day in New Zealand - same thing).
The deal here is that we move through 3 phases of 42 days each. I'm still in phase one - identifying my issues and triggers.
Anyway folks, this is my Christmas card to you all.

RISE UP - by Doug Graves (December 2007)

Rise up to Higher Ground
where better things abound,
and eagles soar above the roar
and chaos strewn below.
Just catch the breeze and lift your wings,
be all that you may dare,
and leave behind the battlfield
where once you marched so bold.
Take flight, rise up to Higher Ground
and watch your dreams unfold.
