A New Canoe
I AM an old prospector, past sixty. I spent twenty-two years scratching, climbing and canoeing through Canada's wilderness, searching for a "find," a mother lode. I did find gold in a hundred different locations but disappointments were many; none of my discoveries proved to be of commercial value. When I returned to a city or village for supplies, I took my drinks the same as the other guy, but my drinking increased and became a problem. I ended up an alcoholic. Through AA I discovered the Higher Power, and was led directly onto the most fortunate "find" that I could ever make.
