Happiness is Being Accidentally Hip!
So I’ve never been someone who has been particularly hip. There is a reason for this, I have never particularly cared to be all that hip. To me, fashion and the vagaries and whims of what society thinks is cool at any particular moment has never held much interest. I have been fortunate to have been someone who wasn’t particularly impacted by others opinions and have worked hard to be less concerned about those opinions as I’ve gotten older.
So I find it quite humorous to suddenly find myself as part of the in crowd. First, hipsters have suddenly made big beards cool and as someone about to go hike the Appalachian Trail I’ve been growing my beard out for some time now.
This is not a new thing for me, here’s a picture of me hiking in Scotland five years ago.
Finally, it seems that long-distance hiking and thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail itself is about to be in vogue. With both Wild about the Pacific Crest Trail and A Walk in the Woods coming out this year it seems that long distance hiking will be all the rage.
So here we are, Reverend Kane might actually suddenly be hip! God help us all!
So go for a hike, buy or grow a beard and you can have a happy day too my friends ~ Rev Kane
