4-10-08: Civilization

Back in Greenville in an actual house with hot showers, Internet, cats, relatives, and all the amenities. I'm trying to catch up on work, taxes, email, newly arrived camera gadgets, et al. Not to mention planning my next adventure which likely will be in the form of a canoe trip. It's amazing how disrupting it feels to change the routine. I have all my gear systematized for car life. Canoe life requires a major rethinking . . . no computer. Eek!

Took a nice walk with my sisters, suffered "snot kisses" from my niece's daughter during an otherwise delicious mahi-mahi dinner. After doing the dishes I went to an excellent NA meeting. I stayed up a while talking with my two elder sisters and then slept for a long, long, time.


  • Meetings in English? -- Whoa!

  • Well, even the meetings I went to in Mexico were in English but the accent at some of these out-of-the-way meetings in South Carolina requires intense listening for me to understand. I wonder, when I read or share, if others have the same problem with my NorCal accent or whatever it is. I consider offering translations after the meeting for those who need them.
