What did I learn this week?

Wow, I love this…and this

I  know this doesn’t really count as updating my own blog (WHICH I WILL…SOON) but I just loved this post, “Fears and the Fathering Paradigm”, by Jeff Sabo so much that I had to link to it.  I think a lot of men can identify with what Jeff says, and he writes about it so […]
