For you who don't know me, I'm 57 years old. Today, as I headed into the last mile, I felt like an athlete. So awesome! Best.Feeling.Ever!
You are awesome. Walking downstairs - forward facing - is difficult enough the next day after running a marathon, but then completing another is just madness.

Not only do people like yourself show me what sobriety can be like, you also change my concept of what it means to get older.

Well done. And happy birthday too; I hope you ate loads of cake; you deserve it.
Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.” Rumi (No sniggering from the sex addicts)
