6:45 PM, Tuesday, July 15, 2014. “…(My beard) is not a statement for me, its functionality. Shaving takes time I’d rather not spend in the morning. And it lasts for so little time before I’m back to having sharp sandpaper texture for a face. That sharp texture tears apart shirt collars and scarfs and makes for a rather prickly experience for the girls. Having a beard is natural thing for me that I except. And unlike many people’s assumptions, the hair is generally soft not bristly. Sometimes I braid it, sometimes not. Depends on my mood or what activity I’m up to. It likes to get caught in zippers, so its easier to keep it shorter or braided in winter. Now that its longer it can dip into food easier which eventually leads me to shortening it again.” -Engineer Paul Koning on the Delanie Park Strip in downtown Anchorage.
