(#252) Ken D (La Mesa, CA)
8/19/2006 in Cartersville, GA  EVENT: 29th Allatoona Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

One of the truly funniest speakers in AA, Ken grew up in Brooklyn where everybody's name started with "A"...A-tony, A-Joey,...

He says he discovered that you cannot think and laugh at the same time. So he gives us a break from our own thinking. Ken never really tells his story in chronological order. He jumps around in a delight manner sharing what he has learned.

He got to take care of his son while he was dying of AIDS.

Recently he gave away everything he owned and moved to aNavajoereservation to learn from the old men in the tribe about the spiritual path.

I had a chance to spend a couple hours with him before this talk and find him to be the same in life as he is behind the podium - full of life and laughter.

Ken spoke later that same day:
