I find myself in the strange situation of being a physically totally blind person with a brain that identifies as sighted. This quandery has piqued my interest in topics such as medical mysteries, performativity, spirituality, psychology, neuroscience, synesthesia, dermo-optical perception, narratology, and art. I don't want to force things, but I am hoping to find someone who wants to collaborate creatively, whether we're writing novels (I'm all character, but no plot), writing songs (I'm all lyrics but suck at melodies), or drawing/painting/photographing/mosaic-ing (I'm bursting with ideas, but am not so great at the execution).
On the practical tangible side of things, I just became a licensed English teacher! (So messages such as "how ru" probably won't get you very far :p). I was also recently accepted into Harvard's arts in education program, so will be moving back to Boston at the end of this summer. But I want to make the best of this Vermont summer, so if you are up for adventures, (tandem bike-riding, rock-climbing, swimming-holing, kyaking, and beach-bumming, just to name a few) give me a shout. I haven't had a creemee yet, and this needs to be remedied.
I'm not lactose intolerant or vegan, but nonetheless am addicted to chai lattes with almond milk. I also love matte lattes, for the rhyme as much as for the taste. I'm a lover of girls with pixy-voices, of wounded warriors, of secret languages, of fragmentary writing.
*Due to the excessive number of messages I've received that start off with "If you are blind how do you do x, y, or z?" the troublemaker in me felt it necessary to append the following FAQ to my profile.
Q: Since you're blind, do you have, like, amazing hearing?
A: Sorry, could you like, repeat the question. I didn't quite catch that.
Q: If you are blind, how are you using this site?
A: There is a geni/love slave/demon trapped in my computer who reads everything on my screen. It's name is JAWS, and my friends have reported that it kind of sounds like a Martian on drugs.
Q: Did you have someone help you set up your profile?
A: Yes. Your mom.
Q: Does your life have more substance than mine? Does bliiindness bring you closer to the Truuuth?
A: No, but I probably bang into more walls than you do.
