Ok, I know, I’m totally geeking out over here, but I thought it was too cool not to share.
Have you ever received a great book as a gift, and failing to read it, let it sit on your shelf? This is exactly what happened a few years ago when my mom loaned me her copy of Three Weeks with My Brother by Nicholas Sparks and Micah Sparks. I was intrigued by the title, and my mom had given it a glowing recommendation, but at the time, I already had an every growing pile of to-read books sitting on my bedstand. And so it went unread…
Fortunately, I arrived at a point in my life where I am going through a bit of transition, and I welcomed an opportunity to deviate from my standard list of business and personal development books. My decision to read the book was also motivated by my upcoming trip “home” to North Carolina for the holidays and the excitement around the opportunity to spend a few days with my own brother.
Over Thanksgiving weekend I returned “home” to Long Island, New York for my 10 year high school reunion. While I was there, I drove by some of the locations where I had spent the years of my childhood. I passed by my elementary school and drove along the causeway of Lloyd Neck (near Billy Joel’s old house). The drive took me along the northern shore and right by the coast of the Long Island Sound. During my drive, I embraced the feelings of nostalgia, and in addition to reliving some great childhood memories, I was lucky enough to be at the waterfront as the sun was setting.
I am typically a clean-shaven dude. It is only on rare occasion that I have grown some facial hair, and in the past, going unshaven was simply an act for my own selfish amusement. However, when I heard about Movember and the global effort to raise money for men’s health, I became inspired.
I had some initial reservations about joining the movement because my 10-year high school reunion is scheduled for the Thanksgiving weekend. Did I want to rock a moustache at an event where many pictures were going to be taken? Since I don’t typically have a moustache, did I want to capture this moment in time with a soup strainer on my face?
After some careful thought, I decided…Hell Yeah! I’m gonna rock a moustache at my reunion and spread the word about men’s health.
A great dentist and an honest mechanic are two people who you want to have in your network of personal connections, but that you hope not to have to visit too frequently. I consider myself blessed to know both.
Fortunately, I have not been in many accidents — but, for the minor dings, dents, and mishaps that have occurred, I am lucky to have a good friend who is an auto mechanic.
