Almost cut my hair

by jhon baker

It wasn’t the hair I was worried about – This is obvious to the onlookers as I allowed a seven year old to cut it – it was the beard I had concerns over. It survived the seven year old shearing.

Had I done it I would look a little different on top but he insisted and I like to encourage – so I am closely cut and all the scars on my head from years of flying through windshields, hitting pavement (M/Cycle) and one golf club to the top, are now showing.
I am not loved for the scars but because I managed to grow despite them.

Cold all night due to blanket in wash. White summer blanket used when I was younger now barely covering my shoulders to shoes, pulled taut between and wrestled within for some semblance of insulation. I did not wish to awaken my lover so I didn’t get close enough to prod the embers of my outer layer.

  1. Must give two thumbs up to your boy's shearing job. You are a brave man. Even at 15, I don't think that I would let mine near me shears.

    I love the idea that scars can promote growth.

  2. It looks to me like he did a good job.
    Each scar, a badge of honor…
    David Crosby, yeah?
