Waiting for another Zoom meeting to begin.

The virus us surging in my area.  I’m still not back to work physically, though the constant trying to reopen our program is so stressful.  I have been to an outdoor meeting several times.  The weather is good, and I think it’s safe.  Of course I could be tragically mistaken.

Confession:  I love the Zoom meetings!  Except for a very few others I’ve attended my wife’s meeting every night at 7.  Pretty much every night!  It’s a small group, that’s probably what suits me the most.  But the lack of virus germs is a major plus.

I still don’t know anyone with the virus, and I haven’t heard of anyone in local AA getting it.  I can’t help thinking though that an indoor AA meeting would be a very likely place to spread it.  I’m extremely grateful that this has happened at a time when there is technology to meet without spreading germs, and that I have the resources to use the technology.

The small group has made it obvious to me how we so desperately need newcomers.  It’s mostly people with lots of sobriety.  These are the people we’ve known over time.  But when one or two new people are there it just focuses us on why we do what we do, what we owe, what we escaped.

Grateful I can go this mile.
