Rumination: Brooklyn, April 16
"The mark of a man is not machismo or any kind of coolness factor — the mark of a man is a willingness to recognize himself for what he is, warts and all, and to make peace with his own imperfections. To laugh at them, even. The mark of a man is an ability to identify with something other than simple manhood. The mark of a man is not an answer to identity — it's an appreciation that being human is a continual, beautiful question."
