"BETTER DROWNED THAN DUFFERS IF NOT DUFFERS WONT DROWN - Swallows and Amazons, Arthur Ransome"

___

My name is Basil(/Baz/Bazzie if you're feeling affectionate. Otherwise, 'that broccoli-gal' will do).

I'm fractionally British (ambitious, tenacious and cynical) with a duple appreciation for Monty Python and Jane Austen. From my chronically overcast island 'paradise' I collect brass instruments and wear all things red. Silence is my safe place, and mathematics my passion. I whistle, I'm Catholic, and I think 'thesaurus' should be the ultimate dinosaur. Fortunately, I never follow my own advice.

What do I write? YA (since I am), sometimes Inspirational or with a dash of the revolutionary spirit, and often driven by the beauteous disappointment of a good anticlimax. My poetry is doggerel. Various collabs.

I've nothing on here worth reading these days, but I'm very open to critique. Recognising and curbing my pomposity is definitely something with which I need assistance...

All the best. God bless if you want to be blessed. (God bless if you don't.)
