MIND

John James Audubon 1785

John James Audubon (1785-1851) was not the first person to attempt to paint and describe all the birds of America (Alexander Wilson has that distinction), but for half a century he was the young country’s dominant wildlife artist. His seminal Birds of America, a collection of 435 life-size prints, quickly eclipsed Wilson’s work and is still a standard against which 20th and 21st century bird artists, such as Roger Tory Peterson and David Sibley, are measured.

Every Human Soul goes through FIVE stages

The word Jihad and the verb that goes with it mean to struggle against some opposition. Thus, each and every human being is engaged in Jihad, in the sense that everyone has to struggle for his existence.

*What is your Jihad? What are you struggling with and how can you overcome it?

Everybody is going to have an opinion, but you’re in the driver’s seat.
People are entitled to their thoughts when awkward moments happen. But at the end of the day, you’re the one who has a choice about how to react to what’s said about you and your business.

*Yelp reviews can be hard to read but remember that you’re in the driver’s seat and have control over the future of your business, regardless of what anyone else thinks.

Fans of The Carol Burnett Show quickly picked up on the comedienne’s regular ear tug at the end of each episode. That small gesture was the thoughtful way she said hello to her grandmother, Mabel Eudora White, who raised her after her parents’ marriage ended.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
