DS Fox's Blog

Feeling reflective... just perused the 20 pages of forum groups and joined those that seemed interesting.

New to the Art of Manliness site, just got the AOK for forum contributions a couple days ago.  I've enjoyed the various articles at AOM over the past couple years... have posted them to Facebook on occasion, especially for my two young adult sons and one daughter.  Good stuff here.  Looking forward to contributing, learning from others, gaining perspective from other men who come from different backgrounds, experiences, etc. …
