In the mood for Monday

This is a Moraine, rocks left by a glacier as it went to the sea.  I came across this place in the Town of Rangley just on State 17, it's large, maybe two miles long.  I took the photo in 2012.

A view of the Moraine from space, State 17 is an improved two lane road so you get a "feel" for the size.


Anyway, it's Monday, I'm smoke free and intend to stay that way.  Up early this "morning" and ready for the day, not much is planned, yet.

Keeping life simple and quiet may at first seem boring. Many of us were used to living in extremes: situations were either going our way and we were ecstatic, or all hell had broken loose and we were enraged, perhaps even suicidal. It was our perspective, often a faulty one, that defined the way situations appeared. Creating chaos had become normal.

Our new life in recovery may at first seem strange. But in time deciding we want to live serenely and slowing down so we can think through circumstances before responding will begin to feel normal. How fortunate that we have a blueprint for doing this.
