Rare Occasion

with 8 comments

Like an orbiting comet that passes through our outer atmosphere several times in a person’s life, every five to seven years, I have been known to cut my hair short. I haven’t done so since January of 2011, when I convinced Cyndie to cut off my dreadlocks.

Last night was one of those rare occasions.

I have no idea if I will wait another five or seven years for a follow-up haircut, but I have an inkling I’ll never again produce the color that was on the end of the length that Cyndie cut off for me last night.

Even though I am not even 59-years-old yet. (I refer to my age as, “way down in my 50s still” to Cyndie, despite the lack of appreciation she shows for my youthful vigor.)

  2. Given that the first time I met you back in 1965 you wore a buzz cut, this looks completely natural to me. I love the analogy about a comet coming around because no matter when we come into each other’s orbit there is something that I connect with, that is recognizable, and it must not be your hair! Keep on being John… Looks good on you today though

    • Precious words for me, Paul. Ditto for me on the feeling of connection, despite time and distance between sightings. Thanks!
