My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My long-term goal is to have a foreboding mansion with its own hedge maze. On foggy afternoons, I will go perambulating in the hedge.

Intrepid visitors will knock on the door to my mansion. "Can I rent the hedge?" they will want to know, for a birthday party, wedding anniversary or business reception.

"Yes, as long as I may deliver my speech beforehand."

I will deliver my speech, about the illusory nature of wisdom, in a manner that seems extemporaneous. (It is not). At the end of the speech, I will go, "aha!", and vanish in an expanding cloud of smoke.

A little while later, I will reappear with cake.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Paul Newman --> decaying face --> skull
