“I think there are a couple of players who could play in the NBA right now, honestly,” Kobe Bryant said when asked whether his daughter could someday play in the NBA. “There’s a lot of players with a lot of skill that could do it. Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Elena Delle Donne. There’s a lot of great players out there, so they could certainly keep up with them.”

*These 2 WNBA superstars both went to UConn and they share a birthday today. They also share the admiration of NBA superstar Kobe Bryant who believed that his daughter would one day make it in the NBA. I’m typing these words the day after Kobe and his 13 year-old daughter, Gianna, died in a helicopter crash. Shoot some hoops with your daughter today.


Peter Dinklage 1969

“Let them see that their words can cut you and you’ll never be free of the mockery. If they want to give you a name take it and make it your own. Then they can’t hurt you with it anymore.”

*You know what people are saying about you. Address it with them – now you own it and they can’t use it to hurt you. I know that people talk about me marrying someone 21 years younger. So I talk about it too. I make fun of it because it is funny.

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.
