Profile Information

Interests
I enjoy the outdoors, reading, writing, cooking and working with my hands. As a single dad, I am grateful for two sons who are my best teachers ever. It's important for me to have the intent to be the dad they deserve even as I fall short. This network is great for me to claim what I consider old school homosociality. As men we need to hang together and the rest is just window dressing.
Books
Iron John, The Power of Myth and Henning Mankell thrillers
Movies
Harold and Maude, Cinema Paradiso Nuovo and My Life as a Dog.
Music
Varied
Quote
There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there. ~ Henry Miller

Hi Anders! Nice Scandinavian-sounding name. Thanks for the image, I have put it on my profile. I think both Fenrir and Tyr have interesting stories for us men.

Fenrir is a wolf, son of two pseudo-gods (Loki and a giantess), who no one dares to approach. He accepts to be bounded with chains to test his strength.

Tyr has the courage to lose a part of himself, his hand, for the sake of the community and thus won a place of honor. He also respected Fenrir's will by touching his jaw while fettering him.

Each man has a little of Fenrir and of Tyr. Most of us are born from flawed parents, feel rejected at a point in our lives and accept constraints in order to proove our strength. But men also aspire to overcoming these weaknesses: without courage, honor and honesty, a man is not complete.
