metanoia-girl asked: Do you have an Instagram or other blog type site?
Yes, I do. My personal Instagram is Dallasannmase.
This morning I accompanied J to the barber for a haircut. Jeff, the barber, arrived, hung up his coat, tied on a waxed denim apron, and rolled up his cuffs to reveal dark, worn sleeves. As he began combing and clipping I quickly realized I was watching an artist work. His motions were thoughtful and precise, almost choreographed. Other men, young and old, arrived and took their chairs. Some had long unkempt hair that hadn’t been trimmed in months and some were in for their weekly touch ups. All sat and talked, watched the news, and debated whose team would win the next game. All the while I sat, a silent observer, and enjoyed watching their world for a few moments.
