Andrea Bocelli, the blind Italian opera singer, has praised his mother for rejecting the advice of doctors to abort him on the grounds that he would be disabled.

*Listen to Bocelli and think about the courage of his mother and the pride she would have in him. Think of the challenges that Bocelli would have faced on his journey to singing stardom.

“If someone slaps you on the cheek, you turn the other cheek, which is an act of resistance. It means that you do not only love your neighbor, but you recognize that even the enemy has a spark of God in them.”

*Turn the other cheek with someone today. Hopefully no one slaps you, but if someone is being difficult with you, recognize that even they have a spark of God in them.

Joan Jett 1958

I like pasta with good olive oil and garlic. I also love tomatoes and make a great passata to go on top. In the summer I love to wood grill vegetables like people grill meat. Portobello mushrooms are great for that.

I like my vegetables plain. I don’t stuff veg with veg, I’d rather eat boiled potatoes with a little salt. I’m a side dish person. When I go out, I order three side dishes. On the tour bus, I like Indian food: chana masala, naan, boiled rice.

*Listen to Joan Jett as you use the recipes

BONUS: Scott Baio 1960 -make his ricotta puffs for dessert.

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.
