Friday’s Fun Find: Fear and Manliness

Yeah, that's me with a 'stache-on-a-stick.

Yeah, that’s me with a ‘stache-on-a-stick.

I woke this morning with no idea what the Friday’s Fun Find would be–or if there would be one. But then serendipity struck as it so often does when I’m not looking, and I happened on to a post called, “And In This Corner…Fear.”

It’s from the blog, The Art of Manliness, and yes, on the post, you will see a couple boxers, but no, it’s not really about boxing as much as it is facing fear, particularly the fears that pound writers, day in and day out. Truly, David Levien wrote so well and so engagingly and so profoundly that I feel like I must read one of his books right. this. minute.

That’s how good it is. So if you are ever asked to write a guest post, consider that it’s your chance to meet new readers and put your best foot forward. Also, you might want to take a few minutes and peruse all the gems over there on the AoM.

And, yes, I know the vast majority of my blog readers are of the female variety but there are an awful lot of fine words over there that I think women would appreciate as well. I especially appreciated the last line from the About page:

Ultimately, the Art of Manliness aims to encourage our readers to be better husbands, fathers, brothers, citizens — a new generation of great men.

Honestly, I am all for that, aren’t you?

  1. Hey Cathy–I’m at an age where I don’t need a ‘stache on a stick… I’ve got my own white/gray one growin’ all au natural on me…

    Yes, that is what we all want–a new generation of great men.

  2. Yesterday, I came home from school, dragging my silkworm moth larvae and remains of science experiments, dragging my tired booty through the door. My amazing Mr. had made chicken stew for dinner and had a box of chocolates waiting. What a guy! I know that doesn’t have anything to do with his career, but it was a wonderful treat. Definitely fits my definition of the art of manliness. 🙂
