(#1230) Ken D (La Mesa, CA)
7/15/1994 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 19th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Ken is a real favorite of mine.

Here he starts by saying in AA we have a language all our own - The Language of the Heart.

"And everything here is paradoxical. And it is an amazing thing about truth, for something to be truthful it has to be paradoxical."

Merriam-Webster defines a Paradox as something (such as a situation) that is made up of two opposite things and that seems impossible but is actually true or possible.

The newcomer hears things like, "You're going to have to change your whole life but don't make any major decisions in the first year."

He came into the Program in New York and he hung out and still hangs out with guys that are totally unscarred by education.

Ken loves to see people laughing because he knows you cannot laugh and think at the same time

"So whenever you are laughing you are getting a respite from your favorite topic which is you."

Classic Ken. Enjoy.
