I’ll post a picture of myself later, but thought I should go ahead and say that I shaved my goatee that I’ve had since Feb. of 2001. (and also shaved my hair pretty short… not completely shaved, but super-short— I did this last Saturday)

It feels weird not to have the beard anymore, but I thought it was time for a change. Also a friend told me that for American Indians when they cut their hair it represents leaving the past behind, so that certainly felt appropriate for the many changes going on right now in my life.
