Rest and revisit
First off, a thank you to everyone new here. This project has grown larger than I could have imagined when I started writing. We are now approaching 260 strong. My attempt to write vulnerable, heartfelt, real pieces on what it means to grow into manhood and even to elderhood is resonating with many of you and I’m every day more energized to meet and talk with every one of you. I’m humbled.
This week has been filled with travel and an illness. We visited my parents and my children got to spend a week away from camps, school, and therapy, simply enjoying time away with their grandparents. It was a needed respite after the years of COVID isolation and moving far away from our families. As we returned, I got taken down by an infection which kept me in bed, delirious with fever, for nearly 48 hours. I’m only now coming out of the worst of it.
So I thought this week I would rest and revisit some of the better pieces on this Substack. These are some of the pieces I’m most proud of, and I think speak to what we’re trying to build together.
I hope you enjoy them. As always, please let me know what resonates and what you want to read more of.
And if you’re willing to share Get Real, Man, I’d be eternally grateful. Shares and likes help others find this newsletter as we keep growing.
