Dear Diary– Two Things You Might Want to Know About Me

checker board1) “My past may be checkered, but my future is spotless.”  This is not an original thought, but it sure fits me like a well tailored coat…although don’t worry, nothing too serious in the rear-view mirror.  But it is an idea I suspect many can relate too.  Certainly I intend to give it a try in my next job interview.  By the way Diary, I know I read this idea in a book, but I haven’t been able to find the source of this phrase, so please let me know if you find out.

2) As Leo Cullum wrote in a New Yorker cartoon, “I’d rather be a huge part of the problem than a tiny part of the solution.”  It’s a much easier way to live, and I commend it.  (You know I’m kidding Diary… don’t you?…Diary?)
