The other day, my M told me I looked like crap. She said I looked like I needed rest, and insisted I fartsack on Tuesday morning. She was right. I’ve had a hellacious project wrap up, and my exhaustion showed.

In that moment, my M was not nice, but she was honest. My brother once told me that being nice isn’t a virtue, but that being honest is. I challenge the Pax to surround themselves with people who can be honest with them, and to be honest with others when possible. As men, we tend to think that we should just keep working at something, when in actuality, we can be at risk of exhaustion. I needed to hear what my M had to share. Maybe someone needs to hear you.


Very little mumble chatter. When time was called, I did hear something along the lines of “oh thank God for small victories.” I’ll take it.

Chamber music promised, chamber music delivered during Countarama.


Sale creek convergence 2/8. Looking to get a 2.0 campout scheduled for end of March.
