      I typically shave my head.

      In a moment of madness in 2000, while in Japan, I cut shoulder-length hair with a razor. All the kids at my high school loved it and for a few days they were going around asking to rub my head.

      Japanese have a word called “shitsu-ren”. Shitsu means lost and ren means love. So the traditional story is that young men shave there hair when they fall out of love, or break-up with their girlfriends.

      I fluctuate but the Grafton Barber is on my way home so I often go there. For years I used to cut my own hair but these days I’m pretending to look more professional.
