A brief note

As you're reading this, please keep in mind that these pages are a lie. Not a total lie, of course: I never wrote anything here that I believed to be untrue. But, still, a lie. This is a particular view of myself which I choose to present to you, the reader.

If you've never met me before in person, please keep in mind that I am not the same in person as I am in writing, because I can only put part of myself down into words (perhaps the best part?).

If you have met me before in person, please consider that both the view you've formed that way and any view you create by reading this may be true. Don't automatically discard either viewpoint when they conflict, or, for that matter, accept it as gospel even when they agree. Thanks.

I suppose this all applies to other people too, but like everything else, it's more true for me.
