Sh*t Happens

Shit-happens-blog-postReilly attended for his Christmas haircut in Gort yesterday. The thing about haircuts with Mattie is that they’re a lot more than just a haircut. They’re experiences of deep and profound and transformative learning.

This year already Reilly and Mattie have discussed and debated a wide and varied canon of ‘ism’s’ from atheism to feminism to communism.

And their final conclusion after much reflection is very simply that ‘Sh*t Happens.’ Mattie has posted a copy of their thesis on the window in ‘Timeless Barbers’.

Read all about it here. But mostly, have a good laugh at it, and Happy Christmas to you all.

* It doesn’t matter what your persuasion is ‘Sh*t Happens.’ The trick is to acknowledge it, accept it and deal with it.


Sh*t happens, has happened and will continue to happen. But you (the reactor to the sh*t) get to decide what it means and what impact it will have in your world because sh*t doesn’t determine you, you determine sh*t.’
—Craig Harper
