I am thinking about the properties that define a person, the things we can collect and list and collate until they add up to some weight of understanding, some knowledge of the person and about how they will react or respond to situations. These characteristics, we believe, define a person to the point they become whole. That one time when they have greasy hair pulled back with lines where fingers have been pulled through and his eyes always downturned, evasive. Then there are the long subtle fingers, always with dirt the trimmed nails and the prominent veins and swollen knuckles.
