husband, father, foreman, friend, pastor, christian, atheist, conservative, liberal, libertarian, delinquent, criminal, alcoholic, addict, laborer, concrete man…

Labels.  Like it or not they have meaning.  All of the above, at some point in my life, have accurately described me.

Presently, these are the foremost among them:

I am a father of six.

A husband to one.

A foreman of many on a construction crew.

…and an observer of culture.
