“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives,”

*As a citizen of the world, work each day on fostering an inclusive culture where everyone should have a fair shot at achieving their greatest potential. And this includes you! Watch the movie 42 for inspiration.

“With Pilates, I get to bring my true self. I cry, I laugh. I get to go: Where is my body today? What do I need today? How can I take care of myself and push myself past my comfort zone? How can I be both loving and challenging?”

*Take care of yourself and push past your comfort zone with a Pilates class. As always, start with an introductory class where applicable.

SOUL

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.
