I want to do everything as well as possible. When I tackle something, I take it seriously – I have never liked dabbling in this and that. I got up at five in the morning, did my workout routine from beginning to end, reviewed, went to school, and then reviewed and reviewed again after that. No parties, no going out. I’m just as determined when it comes to making my films – or actually everything in my life.”

*When you took on this year, hopefully you took improving your mind, body, and soul seriously. If not, a whole new year starts in less than 2 weeks. Go into it with an inexhaustible drive and ambition.

When she feels the most beautiful: After yoga or after sex.

*Connect to the divine, connect to the beloved, or both.

“Don’t get caught up with trying to get a specific job title, because a title in one company could mean something completely different in another. Instead, focus on obtaining new skills, more education, and new experiences. Always bring your whole self to work and get involved in the communities where you work and live—if you do this, you’ll have a lasting impact and find more meaning in your job.”

*With your current job, focus on obtaining new skills, more education, and new experiences.

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.
