New to Sober Recovery, hello....


I'm just checking in to say hello to all of you Iím happy to be here. I just joined and the administrator said that I should start by introducing my self. I am sober by God's Grace; now that I am sober I do a Varity of things. I enjoy painting mostly oil on canvas; I'm a big fan of Chagall and Van Gogh.

Lately I've been pretty busy with anything to do with recovery (Recovering what is lost is a Nobel task), meetings, speaking, chairing, eastern meditation, and Big Book study.

I look forward to hearing what everyone has to say

Congratulations on your sober time!
I agree....Recovery Rocks!

Welcome to SR!

I have a pair of Van Gogh's
I switch with the seasons
Do you think they are valuable?
Just kidding
I would have sold them long ago.

I'm sure you already know this but Van Gogh in his lifetime only sold one painting entitled The Red Vineyard, symbolic of the life he lived. Thank-you congratulations on your time as well, Recovery definitly rocks.
