I've long loved words and more importantly quotes. Depending on who you are and where you are currently, how you experience the quotes may be different than everyone else, or may even be the same. It's all about the conversations the MML begins (in your own mind or with others).
Given my Jamaican heritage, I want to start with that. It's an expression (in Patois) used to wish good fortune and a good trip to departing travelers, or in this case, consistent readers.
28-28 was the score at the end of regulation during Super Bowl LI: Patriots against the Falcons. No, I'm not a Pats fan, but my mentor (PH) would always talk to me about mindset. He taught me to think that it was 14-14 at halftime. It doesn't matter how you started or who scored first, come out of halftime ready to rock. I switched it from 14-14 to 28 all because that's exactly the mindset the Pats had trailing 21-3 at halftime before making one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, on the biggest stage.
Holla at all the Mammoths! This brings me back to Neck and the fellas who taught us to say Eya (lata) as opposed to "See Ya Lata" when we would beat our arch rival the Ephs.

The initials at the top each week are from YOU! They are the initials of people that have shared quotes. This isn't solely about me, it's about us, and I thank you all for being a part of the journey over the last decade.
