After a sharing a delicious dinner, my good friend Robby Fox and I sat down and shared a conversation that covered a whole variety of topics, including (but not limited to): manhood, initiation rites, visionary experiences, embodying our roles in life, abrupt climate change, the modern education system, Robby's experiences in China, identity, connections that bind us together, being a foreigner in a strange land, and friendship.
The overarching theme of our conversation is that identity is a construct, and that beyond our identities exists the true roles we are meant to embody. I thank Robby for sharing his beautiful thoughts with me, and I thank him and his wife Emma for being so generous and kind to me.
