A Glimpse into the World of Men

Men experience the world in different ways, and many of those ways are not always familiar to women.

Cowboy 1

The archetypal American male, the cowboy hat a symbol of the Wild West and all the universal stereotypes of America.

Library 2

The military – once a rite of passage for almost all American men – another stereotype.

Kroger 1

And still another, hunting, fishing, and cars.

When the years roll by and time sweeps through, like women brought up on a steady diet of “beauty is everything,” men also face enormous changes.

    I suspect that women are better able to understand the world that men inhabit than the other way ’round. Those of us who have at least one Y-chromosome are likely to believe that men are from Mars, but women are from some other universe altogether.

    Which is not necessarily a bad thing… other than being incomprehensible.


    1. The incomprehension kind of works both ways sometimes!
