The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

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
