    1. Speaking of manly hugging… I used to work with some Air Force folks. There is a manly ritual hug that never varies at all, as if it’s choreographed:
      1-clasp right hands thumb to thumb & fingers over buddy’s hand
      2-pull buddy toward you
      3-bump chests
      4-slap buddy’s back
      It’s quite amazing. Never varies.

      Thank you David for your meditative & thoughtful comment!


    1. I wondered whether I should post this photo. But then, all the young men being trained from a young age imagining they’re invincible, and then reality happens.

      Thank you for your comment, Val.

    1. Thanks Gunta. When I walked by this scene at a local movie theater, it just stopped me in my tracks. Had to take the picture, had to post the picture.


  1. Interesting choice of photo, M! I was thinking today that as long as there is testosterone, there will be war. Can’t see any way around that. Kind of comes with the territory. I know I am grossly generalizing, but there seems a correlation between high testosterone and strong egos.

    1. So it seems to me also, Eliza. The first thing I thought of when seeing this scene was that old Crosby Stills Nash Young song — “teach your children well”.


Looking forward to your thoughts
