“Since my surgery, I’ve made my physical and emotional health a priority above all else. Whether it’s on my own or through guided meditations on YouTube or Headspace, I find that those few minutes a day of clearing my head & centering myself make a huge difference on how my day goes.”


*Her website is really good. Check it out. It’s got some 365DOLF to it. Use it for your 2 minute meditation.

“I like being alone with no to one hear me. I run or bike or go on the elliptical. I breathe into my body. I do a mixture of yoga and Pilates. I love to stretch. I get tremendous joy from working out. I know it sounds crazy,”

*Workout alone today. Run, bike, elliptical, yoga, or Pilates. Don’t forget to stretch.

“Which baptism truly heals?  Do we need the water of God, or the blood of a 9-year old laying on a street in Tucson?  The answer is profoundly and simply obvious.  We need redemption gushing from the rivers of God’s love, not that of blood-soaked sidewalks. 

If we don’t speak for the soul, our silence will surely aid evil.”

*Speak for the soul. Don’t let your silence aid evil. Think of getting baptized. 


Kanye West 1977

“I got a problem with spending before I get it” from All Falls Down

*Don’t spend money that you do not have yet. Listen to Kanye for motivation. His music – not his rhetoric.


Jerry Stiller 1927 – watch Zoolander

*His son Ben is the star but he’s no slouch as Maury Ballstein – head of Ballstein Models, in this must watch yearly movie.

The night before she died, Bush was alert and was having conversations — along with a glass of bourbon.


*She was married to the vice president for 8 years, then married to the president for 4 more years, and then was the mother to the president for 8 more years. Enjoy her mushroom quiche while watching Zoolander. And wash it down with a glass of bourbon.

“You know, my health is no laughing matter. My vegetarian diet helps me stay health and fit. Not just for myself, but for the one’s I love. From pasta primavera, a hearty vegetable soup, or my mothers red beans and rice.  Delicious and good for you. That’s no joke. Tonight, make it vegetarian.”

*Besides the FLOTUS mushroom quiche, make some pasta primavera, vegetable soup, and red beans and rice to make it vegetarian all day.

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.
