"The unexamined life is not worth living."
So said my old drinking buddy Socrates.
But the examined life is still fucking hard.
And completely worth it. Without a doubt.
This I do know. It's not about attracting followers, "likes", or other similar things. Though you're welcome to follow along if you like.
It is about at least two things:
1. A place for me to express my thoughts on what it means to be a full time dad and outdoors guy. Let's be honest, it's about me. Kind of a mental workshop for writing and sorting out life and whatever it feels like tossing at me.
2. Yet, beyond the admittedly self-indulgent aspect of all this, I return to the guideline that I've tried to apply to any post, comment, etc. I've made online over the last 25 years: Can what I'm posting contribute something positive to at least one other person or is it just about me? If the latter, then I probably don't need to do it.
It can be about me, but I want that to be helpful in someway to someone else. Does that make sense?
As I said, a work in progress. I'll keep you posted if anyone is actually listening!
