My self-summary
I pay no heed to likes or stars or whatever it is now and never use them. Message away. Pedestrian attempts receive gonzo responses. Enjoy!

If I messaged you first, it's only because I want to converse with you about the thing in your profile that fascinates me. I want your perspective. Write with me.
