My-dentity – Go Hidal-Go!

Wilde only completed one novel – but The Picture of Dorian Gray is one of the best ever.

*This could be the MONEY lesson today, but it could also refer to meeting your significant other or finding the right religion – you only need to strike gold once. Start reading The Picture of Dorian Gray today.

Bol, a Christian Sudanese immigrant, believed his life was a gift from God to be used in the service of others. “God guided me to America and gave me a good job. But he also gave me a heart so I would look back.”

*Where has God guided you to?

How can you be in the service of others?

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.
