About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

  3. I hope everyone has had a great Thanksgiving. It is by far my favorite holiday. I’m particularly grateful for life and for bloggers like you, Jay, who add a more personal dimension to connecting through blogging. I’m also grateful for my followers who in the end make it all worthwhile.

  4. Today is Monday. Had turkey popovers for lunch and leftover pumpkin/chipolte salsa from a coffee/Scholarship sale yesterday afternoon and today. I shared a friend’s turkey, but I came home and baked a turkey breast for sandwiches and leftover recipes for the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have some chicken marsala sauce left. Hmmmm wonder if turkey marsala would be good? Have a good week after Thanksgiving.
