My response to the weekly photo challenge. I have a few I could have posted, but I decided to snap another one for the occasion. It would be nice to have time to do it better – really try to summarize who I am in one photo – but part of who I am, is BUSY, i.e. not having time to play around taking lots of pictures of myself.
A friend of mine (in my forlorn beardless days) once implied that, if you let your beard grow long enough, you cease to be a “man with a beard” and start to become “a beard with a man”. I think I have a way to go before I cross that line. But someday I might let it grow longer to see if I can get a respectable “patriarchal” beard (you know, like the paintings of Abraham or Moses). But I think those long beards look better when they are white with venerable age. Don’t ask me why.
