" #PleaseStealThese "  -- Lucki
Some really nice ones there. THANK YOU for keeping me on the mailing list. -- Kim Bowden-Kerby

This year's quotes alternate between the rooms of recovery and original quotes by Guests who frequent this website. Plus a few of my own that I've been looking for somewhere to use. Plus the usual baker's dozen for Baha'i events, centering on what makes us happy and with a nod to the 12 Steps. Feel free to copy/paste any images anywhere. Your social media, emails, a card, poster, T-shirt, whatever. But just for your personal use, not $-making. Please don't crop credit lines. Do use hashtags. And enjoy!
