A lot of people told me when they first saw my "pen name" that 'husky' meant 'bulky'; and that 'concerned_husky' meant I was concerned with my bulkiness. I'm as skinny as a twig.

I chose 'concerned_husky' because I was concerned for others, and I liked huskies. I still am, and I still like huskies smile

I own a restaurant where the name of my place ends with "Cafe." So I became CafeMan. Some people thought I owned a coffee house, but I own a full service family style casual restaurant.

Onesimus means "useful". It's a reminder that I'm not useless/damaged goods. A reminder I need sometimes.

Adam A Gedman, or A damAged man
It's unfortunately how I see myself.

Maybe it should be
M A Nunderr Epair, or Man Under Repair.

all my life I isolated and felt I had to do this thing alone. when I finally decided that my way was never going to work I knew I would have to allow some people in to me that was all NEW GROUND
it is still a struggle but I am moving forward... seems like this ground is pretty muddy lol

"Jude" is a reference to the jews of the Holocaust, in which half of the world's jews were systematiclly killed. I liken this to the current level of sexual abuse of children, 1 in 6 boys; 1 in 4 girls. Equally horrifying numbers.
