MEN’S ONLY EVENT
You ever look in the mirror and all of a sudden notice that you’ve changed?
Or that you’re changing?
It’s actually kind of jarring.
You don’t recognize yourself.
How did it happen right under your nose, before your eyes, without you noticing?
And even more, who have you become?
What happened to the old you? The other you?
At first, it happens so frequently and swiftly that you barely have a chance to notice. Then, it becomes a slow shifting, a lazy morphing that settles into place just as your eyes set upon it. But it’s too late to do anything about it.
Well, it’s not like you could had you caught on early enough.
It’s humbling to meet the reckoning of change. The kind that you don’t see as it’s happening. You just look up one day, and there it is.
