God of the Air

Ancient Maya considered the resplendent quetzal divine (aka “god of the air”) and a symbol of light. The Point is now moving from a print to a light medium and will soon reside in the cloud forest, too. Since December is our last print issue, your editor is getting up to speed with WordPress. Our primary purpose is carrying the message by any means necessary, as Kathleen C. reminds us on Page 10. Please let us know your thoughts via thepoint@aasf.org.

In this issue Bree L. tells John C.’s story, including Boy Scouts and Mickey’s half pints. Anonymity helped John W. through the worst of times, then buoyed him into the best of times (with a nod to Charles Dickens). Luke H. puts all the pieces together for Unity Day. Daniel F. keeps mind and heart open with inventory questions on Page 8. In the beginning A.A. borrowed concepts from several belief systems and Bill W. credited three non-alcoholics for principles behind the Steps.

Claire A. finds out how wide-ranging the definition of normal really is. Ken J. hears the language of the heart after 28 years of deafening silence from his dad in “Those Three Words.” And Rick R. finds joy in the season with a new attitude. He practices radical concepts such as “not being the center of attention” and “preserving the dignity of the other person.” Like Lennon and McCartney sang: In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
