That's a picture from my bike ride yesterday. I drove across town with my road bike on the back of my car - only to take it off and find that it had a flat tire. So I drove back to my side of town, hopped on my mountain bike and rode to a nearby park (see above.) I took my road bike back to the bike shop, got the tire repaired (again) and will hop on it in a minute and take a nice early morning ride.
I am devoid of ideas this morning. I feel tired and dull. I hope a bike ride will get me back on track. I am grateful to be sober. Some days when I feel slightly bad, I remember what it was like to feel HORRIBLE every day until I got some alcohol in my system.
"Personally, I take the attitude that I intend never to drink again. This is somewhat different from saying 'I will never drink again.' The latter attitude sometimes gets people in trouble because it is undertaking on a personal basis to do what we alcoholics never could do. It is too much an act of will and leaves too little room for the idea that God will release us from the drink obsession provided we follow the AA program." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 16
