Initial Entry

This begins the documentation process of my quest to become a better man.  I came to this site to see how I would compare and I find myself lacking.  Therefore, I am taking it upon myself to change habits, attitudes, and manners to become a more complete man. 

Since becoming a member of the the site, I have changed some of my habits, especially in dealing with other people.  The biggest change has been dealing with my girlfriend and when I explained to her what it was I was doing, she…

Vacation Planning: "Are We There Yet?"

The 1,000-foot climb to Yosemite’s Vernal Falls had been spectacular. My wife and I now started hiking back down the cliff, a much more relaxing direction then the steep trek up the slippery, rocky trail. We both wore wool socks and sturdy hiking shoes nicely broken-in from previous excursions among the Sequoias and…

Short Cuts

I was walking through a large bookstore the other day, and I was noticing the plethora of quotation books.  It seems anyone with any sort of published works has a book of someone else's idea of the their most profound statements...  Have we lost the ability to recognize great ideas on our own.  It seems to me people are filled with profound statements, and they don't have any idea why they are profound.  They didn't take the time to read the book, listen to the entire speech or understand…

Toughening Up

Been feeling rather blue lately.

I know the time change has something to do with it, and the maudlin weather so typical of the end of winter. But there is more to it. I’ve had a string of things come along and rock the delusion that I’m happily becoming a better person, better man.

It also wakes me up to how much fear I live in…and if I tell you promise not to laugh.... well, go ahead. I know how silly it is.

I’m afraid of being hurt, and not physically.

Man Thought #3: Every man needs a dog

Whether single, dating, or married, every man should own a dog at some point in his life.

You see, a dog is like a kid that doesn’t die if you forget to feed it for a day or two.  If you’re a man like me, you’re probably not naturally the caring type.  A dog forces you to care about something beside yourself.

As an only child, I begged my parents…
