Growing a beard is an awesome experience that all capable males should do. The best part is not having to shave daily. A close second however is the feeling of the wind tugging at your chin. Thirdly, the opportunity to stroke the beard when in pensive thought is an excellent excuse for a beard.
By far the most annoying side-effect of growing the beard was other people’s pre-occupation with it. People would almost never talk to me about anything other than the beard. Now of course the big news is that I’ve shaved my beard, so the saga hasn’t ended yet! My beard grew to a terrific length of 6″ or around 15 cm. It was a wonderful experience and I urge you all to grow beards and be hairy!
Following are a few pictures. The Cossack, Ché and Minstrel ones were taken May 29, 1999 in College Heights, Alberta by my sister, Saison.
