Set Aside Prayer

God, please set aside everything I think I know about myself, everything I think I know about recovery, and everything I think I know about you.  Please help me to have an open mind so I may have a new experience and discover the truth.

Chekhov

In “The Seagull” he wrote, “After… a glass of vodka you are no longer Peter Sorin, but Peter Sorin plus somebody else,” a Jeopardy! clue on 2019-01-04 reminded me of the quote from Edward Rowland Sill, “First the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the man.”  Chekhov must have read Sill’s, An Adage from the Orient, because he didn’t write the Seagull (1895) until after Sill died in 1887.
