The past has been a mint
Of blood and sorrow.
That must not be
True of tomorrow.

*As you start your second month of the year, hopefully everything has gone well. But if the past month or your past in general, has been a mint of blood and sorrow, remember that must not be true of tomorrow.

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.
