My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. I am on the southside. I'm a butcher that works with happy meats using seam butchery. I also produce delicious meat stuff, think salami. I like to think that I focus on quality over quantity in my work. This is also true in my other pursuits.

I ride a red lugged steel bike (even though I'm colorblind to red; my brain still fills in the gap and gives me what I perceive to be red) and get hit by cars bit too often for my liking. I always make sure that I have at least one book with me at all time. If I make a trip to somewhere more than two hours away, I up the number to four-ish books, just to be safe.

I've been told that I have a nice sense of humor, ranging from dry to absurd to dark. Once, a guy slashed his wrist while butchering a side of hog. He sprayed a bit of blood. I giggled.

I took Kurt Vonnegut's advice to be kind and so far, the results has been ok. When strangers on the street ask me for directions, I nod and pretend to understand. I then point them toward a random direction, just to inspire them with confidence. They will find their Destination.

I'm d/Deaf. This leads to me being a visual and tactile person, with different sensory inputs such as 180 degree peripheral vision and feeling sounds through my feet. Being a solidly visual person also means that I communicate via visual means, usually Sign Language or Written English, but I've been pulling out gestures more often nowadays.

I look masculine, scruff and all. But I'm not concerned about keeping my interests and behavior masculine. I mean I do throw around logs, cut a lot of meats, and drink beers with bourbon. But I also bake cookies and giggle.

Far as I am concerned, there is no difference between cyberspace and meatspace in terms of richness in relationships.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The current Big Three things I'm thinking about:
neurodiversity, permaculture, and consciousness.

Sometimes my mind wanders over those topics:
Deaf Studies, Information and Knowledge, comics, nature, cultures, Deaf culture, cooking, communication, language, and cultural barriers, books, TV shows, food, languages, delicious salads, history of Indianapolis, history of I-65, bikes, stuff that I don't know, USA and World news, where food comes from, anthropology, medical anthropology, urban planning, posthumanism.

Also, I think about words have been showing up often. Current curious recurring word of month: kaleidoscopic.

"Given the kaleidoscopic characters of the self, only a few facet will ever be lived. This incompleteness is part of the existential tragedy, but the more that can be lived, the richer one's life will be." - an epigraph to The Manufactured History of Indianapolis.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, trees, and making delicious sammiches- seriously, I grill both sides of the bread slices for the double crunchiness.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was a boy, I had an invisible friend that I argued with.

And I blow my nose loudly.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're different (strange, queer, deaf, marginalized, etc.).

I'm great with shy people, don't be shy, yo.
