Ruminations on the Act of Shaving

A double edged razor adds to the act a sort of timelessness — though the thing was only invented a century ago — and elevates it to ritual. It is an act of meditation, an escape from the mundane — the repetitive, brain-dead, electronic processes of our time. It is moment unto itself, not merely a pause or interlude till the next scene. Instead, something to be planned for, to be appreciated, and to look forward to, and that, in the end, is what truly matters.
