MISFIST

MISFIST

It happened AGAIN! I have been clean and sober for 22 years, 347 days. I know by the hatred, the dread, and all the excuses I come up with not to attend large parties that I am NOT comfortable in those environments. You know the company xmas parties, milestone birthdays, the parties where there is lots of alcohol and lots of falseness. You have probably been to one or two of them yourself. I never was good at these so… Read More

THE SELF INDUCED VICTIM

THE SELF INDUCED VICTIM

Recently I had a rough day. A day where I took everything personally. “Why is everyone out to get me?!” A day where I drowned in the pool of assumption for hours. “Help!” A day where temper tantrums were a plenty. “I never get my way!” Oh yeah. I also assigned magical qualities to someone. “He should know better!” Yep it was on of those days. A Zachary Special Victim Unit kind of day. That’s right everyone. I’ve got a… Read More

MEMORIAL DAZE

MEMORIAL DAZE

May 19th Tracey and I recorded a podcast with Randy Cohen.  An enjoyable visit with an interesting man. During a break I rather casually mentioned that it was the anniversary of my fathers death.  “Today?  May 19th?” Tracey asked. I answered “Yes, in 1954. Two days before his 60th birthday.”  It had quietly and almost clinically occurred to me. We nodded respectfully and the conversation moved on. It was one of those moments when a memory surprises you by its… Read More

AFTERCARE

AFTERCARE

  Last Sunday I woke up really early after an extended trip, stepped on the scale and found my nibble was showing.  I’d picked up a few extra pounds and I could feel it.  Not good.  Not life threatening but a lapse in my food discipline just a hair past acceptable. When Tracey and I began working on the book I had applied the affirmations to my food issues. I was thrilled with the results. I dropped almost 30 pounds… Read More

YOUR IDENTIFICATION PLEASE

YOUR IDENTIFICATION PLEASE

  I had an interesting dream a few nights ago.  I was on stage in a vast auditorium with many balconies and elaborate old – world decorations. It was difficult to see.  I was blinded by a powerful spotlight.   I felt a strong desire to get past the formal setting.  I was smiling, trying to block out the light so I could see the audience and let them know that I considered them friends.   A little like a nervous kid… Read More

ALLOW

ALLOW

  Allow; to let do or happen, to permit, to grant, to make provision for. The word allow historically had negative connotations attached to it for me. A rigidity would happen in my body and mind when I would think of or hear the word allow. Even today, it can conjure up images of patriarchal men oppressing women and children, of mothers controlling their children, of abusive husbands maintaining control over frightened wives. I don’t think that allow is always… Read More

BILLBOARDS

BILLBOARDS

  I graduated High School in 1958.  Yes, a long, long, time ago. But the teenage trauma I experienced left a fair amount of psychic debris and to this day I feel a wave of discomfort when I find myself surrounded by adolescent. In high school I was physically different from my classmates.  Tiny, with a slow body clock that wouldn’t deliver me to physical maturity until after graduation, I had a tough time. With the exception of a few… Read More

WHO’S SOONING WHO?

WHO’S SOONING WHO?

We are adding a new weekly section to the website  called Working Your Gratitude and Trust. While we all know we are working on things and we have the concepts in our heads we don’t always work our G and T as well as we could. I know I don’t.   We are all human, busy, preoccupied and often just get lazy.  So to keep us working our Gratitude and Trust, we will start the week by giving you something to focus on. This week,… Read More
