Men Telling Tales

To all men who call Dane County home,

My guess is that you have thoughts.  You have feelings. No doubt you have opinions, and I suspect that many of us have stories.  I also know from experience, that sharing those stories, (and feelings and thoughts and opinions) is good. Good for me and good for us, to hear one another, and to give voice to what we hold inside.

Here’s what I did.  I reserved the community room at 3 area libraries,  and I’m inviting you to show up.

Here’s what to expect – The room will have ten chairs in a circle.  There will be other chairs. The ten in the middle are Circle Chairs.  Men who choose to sit in the Circle Chairs agree to abide by the rules, which are mostly about listening, and questioning, and sharing,  and confidentiality.

Here’s what you can do – Show up. Agree to sit in a Circle Chair, if what you have to say is helpful, insightful, truthful & entertaining.

Who’s doing this?  I am. My name is Steve,  I’m a father, grandfather, husband and friend. I’ve lived in Madison for 30 years and run a small business.

Please bring an unopened bag of something good

Follow up –

These events occurred with very little participation.  Hundreds of invites were distributed. It left we wondering why with my own answers being all over the board.

If you are a man that shares my desire to see men from all walks of life join together in circles for understanding, please contact me through this website. Maybe it needs to begin, one on one, then two on two and this will be the seed that leads to real and sustainable change.  Thank you.
