“I haven’t read a newspaper in 20 years. I don’t look at the computer or anything. You have to have a filter on what you let in.”

*Filter what you let in today. Try to go the whole day without seeing any news. You can catch up tomorrow.

“Do apes have souls, I ask. ‘I think that if we have souls, then they must have souls too,’ I am a cultural Christian, but I prefer to talk in terms of ‘believing in some great spiritual path. I’ve felt it in the forests.”

*I think that I am a cultural Christian. I truly believe that by being a good person, I am on the right path to the afterlife. If not, at least I made the world around me the best that I could. Take today to hike with your dog and think about your beliefs.


Alec Baldwin 1958

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.
