#330 / Hair Apparent


I started thinking about haircuts, recently, when I learned, by way of a Facebook post, that one of my friends had recently had her hair cut. Her hair had extended way below her waist, and like the Bible says in First Corinthians 11:15, "if a woman have long hair, it is a glory...." 

That's the way she apparently thought about it, too. Although she let everyone know that the purpose of chopping off all that glorious hair was to donate it for charity, my friend clearly had a sense of a glory regretfully lost.

By the way, why does all that glory have to go to the females? What about guys who end up with hair like the man who is pictured above? Bob Dylan would have celebrated him!

I’m gonna grow my hair down to my feet so strange
So I look like a walking mountain range
And I’m gonna ride into Omaha on a horse
Out to the country club and the golf course
Carry The New York Times, shoot a few holes, blow their minds

I have always liked those lines from Bob Dylan's song, I Shall Be Free No. 10, but I have never wanted my hair to get anywhere near my waist. As my hair starts getting even a little bit bushy, I start getting extremely restless, and that's a problem, unfortunately, in this time of coronavirus shutdown. 

Luckily, I recently found a way (safe and sane, I think) to handle my personal problem: 

So, that's all good, but it looks like I am going to have to put off that trip to Omaha!
