He's somewhere between twenty-five and thirty-something. He has reached MANHOOD. His rites of passage: Education, car ownership, the soul searching experience of travel.
But isn't manhood the everyday exercise of responsiblity?
As our lives grow older, spare time dissolves. There are never enough minutes in a day to achieve all that is required. We are engaged in a constant stream of tasks, doing maintenance on our work and lives.
So where does the masculine identity reside in today's culture?
What tools can we use to measure masculinity?
A moment. A pause in his day. A non-action which lets him slip out of present necessity and rest in the sub-conscious. Him self, unadulterated.
When asked what he does, his response is a silent pause.
