I'm new here and doing an introduction pt 2: The Links
I stream on #Twitch every Monday and most Wednesdays on the channel I host with my wife and her sisters!
I post when I go live, but you can hide #TruckCommunity if you don't want to see that. :)
I do an art stream there once a month, and I'm slowly migrating the art I do to pixelfed!

Trauma and "drama"
I saw this article about trauma on Daily Xtra & thought it was a good read: why are Queer people so mean to each other?
In short: we are hardwired by our oppression to experience "fight or flight" reactions to uncomfortable situations. We're conditioned to think in black and white. It's a survival mechanism ill adapted to modern society. 1/

It's as satisfying to me as climbing is, you know, as in going up a mountain and climbing. So can you believe how much I am in heaven?

It's terrific, right? So you know, I am in heaven.

auto collision, I'm Fine
I was rear-eneded twice on my way home from my saturday afternoon Bagel Run.
The first was in the parking lot, the guy in the car across from mine backed up at the same time as me and our butts touched. He got out, looked at his car, noted there was no damage and took off without a 'by your leave'.
The second I had stopped at a green light because a pedestrian had jaywalked where I wanted to turn. The truck behind me smacked me going 20, then fucked off down the road.
