One Day At A Time
Well I finally got around to admit that I might have a problem.
But I thought it was just too damn big of a mountain to climb.
Well I got down on my knees and said ¡®Hey!¡¯
¡®I just cant go on livin¡¯ this way!¡¯
With the legendary Joe Walsh coming to play in Colorado it seemed like a good time to highlight
one of his songs in this edition. Of course, with so many great songs created by this hard working
music man, the delimma is which song to pick? Well, since our main theme for this edition is ¡®faith¡¯,
it got me thinking about his song called ¡®One Day At A Time¡¯, which you can find on the 2012 album
entitled ¡®Analog Man¡¯. This song is about Joe Walsh¡¯s recovery from heavy alcohol and cocaine addic-
tions and the main message is that, to break free of those, one needs to ask for help. Now, to get
help though, one must first have faith that they CAN be free, and also faith in the help itself, enough
to call out for it. Joe took that leap of faith and got help and has been freed from the poisons that
held him prisoner. A shining example of faith in action. In the description below the YouTube video of
this song he wrote the following message, which I leave you with in the hope that anyone of you out
there who is struggling with your own poison prisons, will find the faith to ask for help as well.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlfCyHbLdpI - ¡°This song is about my path out of the darkness
of drug addiction and alcoholism. The message is that there IS a way out and a new life waiting in
recovery that is good. The first step is to ask for help... I¡¯m doing this because if it helps one person
- it was worth it. It¡¯s by giving back that we receive and I am eternally grateful for my sobriety and
my life today.¡± - Joe Walsh

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it¡¯s significant spiritual
symbolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger.
It is also about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young
in its nest. It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be obser-
vant and to pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don¡¯t use,
a blessing for which we haven¡¯t expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk
has keen eyesight, it is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us.
Hawk is also about new beginnings and always moving forward along the correct path.
