The act of cultivation is in essence the act of nurturing. Whether it be roses, vegetables, fruit trees, or a Chi Pet, bringing forth life and guiding it to independence can be one of life’s greatest rewards. For the past 22 days, I have been cultivating a mustache. Though I began this journey with the simple fascination that I could finally produce a 1/2 decent looking mustache, the sheer act of nurturing and cultivating my facial hair has provided a deeper sense of reward and satisfaction that can only be equaled to watching a baby calf being born and it’s mother licking it clean. Yesterday, I gave it it’s first pruning…i used nose hair scissors due to my lack of proper tools. Today, I will go out and find a mustache brush as well as mustache wax to create a more groomed and well-trimmed look as well as a healthier shine. Very, very excited.
