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.

From the self-assured cowboy to struggling with a grocery cart.

    Brilliant glimpse at faceless men walking their walk everyday…and we know them all, we’ve seen them and they are all related to us someway, somehow. Well done lady, well done.

    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.
