How To Be A Man

Not a carpet - pine needles.

There’s an old Swedish saying that lays out three steps on how to become a man.
Bear a son, build a house, plant a tree.
In the old days, a son meant your family line continued, a house meant you owned the land you worked, and a tree meant you aimed to stay there. 
As I reach middle age, I’m reflecting on my own progress. Wanna know how I'm doing?  I write all about it in "How to be a Man" over on The Scrib.  Check it out here.
