Thanks for the welcome, S Arthur Grey.
I don't feel uncomfortable, I think a lot of curriculums are more about 'induction', a forcing in, than 'education', a leading out; yet I understand the power of codes. Without them, we'd be lost, for sure! That's why, although I'm a freestyle writer, I respect and admire strict form. I like to play and work with both, et al.
(I have a friend that smuggled me a pass for the university library, years ago. For 2 years, I was in that library sifting through the most amazing stuff. Now I've got the internet, I can revise what's sparked my interest, and hopefully hone my scatta-brain into some sort of form of my own.)
I'm giving it a lifetime, though. I'm a bit slow.
