Half measures avail us nothing...

 Half measures avail us nothing... comes from the AA Big Book. aww...

Progress, not perfection- from Alanon, really. aww ...

The second saying, for me may have a tad of passive aggressiveness attached to it. "Play Safe".

"Spare the histrionics, David..." was something I coined myself- more from ACA.

 

In CODA we might move from being submissive to being aggressive, in a short swing...not being able to forge a middle way.

I am at a stage- where I am beginning to gather everything together- to sum everything up.

If I have a major muck-up in my life- I may not have enough years to put it right. hmm ...

 aww Was 10 or 11. Was flawed- I had C-PTSD. I was determined to discover something really important for humanity.

I still have that dream. I want to discover something essential about trauma- and about how an individual can deal with it...

and the experimental person- the only person is myself!

In recent times I have begun to get alongside people like myself. People I knew in past decades. especially the '70's.

Get along side of them- and compare notes.

In the end I may not discover anything. I am not being grandiose!

But- who knows?

  aww Had a falling out with a friend a month or two ago- at a tangi [funeral].

For some- in Ao-NZ these are three or four day affairs- and a lot of crap can come to the surface.

Anyway his dad had been a fairly well-know writer- and the dad was a close friend of mine, in the day.

Today I came across a letter and an unpublished poem of his dad"s . This is not one-up-on-you-ship...

well, not really [I hope].

So it got published in the writers facebook profile this morning. aww ...
