The Enlighteners

I'd Bend Over Backwards For You

Be it Recovery or just Plain Life, we are none of us alone in this journey.

There are the people who have blazed the trail before us, now showing us the way. There are those who march beside us, cheering us along. There are those, too, who walk behind us, pushing us forward on our paths.

This post is a Thank You to you, my readers, the Enlighteners. You are brightening my way, and i wouldn’t want to try this without you.

[This post was inspired by a reply i started to Melis, who was visiting from her blog, iamnotshe.]

About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home.

  1. Damn you’re sweet! I am flickering like a serene candle now. Erm, or just on an even keel love.

    Boy … i don’t know whether i’m beside or behind, under or over … GO MAN GO!!!!

    I’m so happy for you. Best of everything to you!! You and Mrs. D are cruising into a wonderful Day At a Time Life. God bless! HEY, looks who’s religious?

  2. Oh, and MY GOOOOLLLLLLY, what sweet and innocent pics … All, where you been?

  3. Heheheheheh! That is a really cute pic. 🙂 And I’d a-rekkinize me a Chez Tarzheyyyy (“Target” pronounced the French way) restroom anywhere! They are so often some of the nicest ones in stores. I ♥ Target.

    We cannot walk alone through life. No man is an island, and all that jazz. It seems to me that alcoholism is a very isolating disease. To begin to reconnect with others is a sign of recovery and truly, IMO, what life ought to be about. Keep on connecting.
