A picture from a previous vacation. I’m on vacation again, and trying to lessen my vacation anxiety, which finds many objects to attach itself to.
I went to one of the smallest AA meetings I have ever been to on this vacation. There were two people there aside from Carole and I. They said that they were trying to build the meeting up again. We had a meeting of sorts for a while. Carole and I have looked at the meeting list for this area many times, and I’m struck by how few meeting there are and how far people have to travel to get to them. I’ve probably shared this before, but I’ve lived in several places in sobriety. Five actual distinct areas, one of them very rural and some distance from a very small city. But I have always had abundant, nearby meetings and so I’ve really had my choice. I’m always grateful, but at times like this I’m super grateful. AA without a choice of meetings like that is something I have never had to deal with.
