New Year – Same Life

Nothing much changes in spite of the turning of  new leaves and the taking up of resolutions (other than to boost the income of workout centers).  We all want a quick fix and the resolution gives the sensation of movement while marking time in place. There is a moment of psychic relief (even pleasure)  followed by relapse.

 Folk in recovery work their program by claiming small bits of life at a time!  I’m grateful for this moment and the next ten.  That is a modest and perhaps even attainable goal.  It is the inevitability of gradualness. JWS
