About The Shave
About this blog: The Perpetual Shave is a reflective, creative-nonfiction blog focused on the introspective questions raised by the experiences of fatherhood.
About me: Who am I? Some days, I am myself, but most days I am simply a summation of little attempts and failures that infrequently add up to the scribbled sketch of a man who is attempting to be a stay-at-home-Dad, theatre artist, writer and husband and runner. Usually in the same blink of a half-second.
Life happens fast. Last night I got married, and woke up this morning with two children and a foot half-way down the long road. I rarely have time to think about the moments that bubble and pop throughout the day. I write, do laundry, chauffeur to school, mow the lawn, run, make dinner and occasionally get a chance to shave, perpetually. Looking back on my day, I always sigh to think how many moments with my kids got lost in the fracas.
Hence this blog. Time to think. Time to remember. Time to shave.
