How I came to write Pim
People often ask how I came to write Pim. It seems like a thousand years since I discovered Pim, or that Pim discovered me. Thankfully I kept detailed notes and saved photos from that time. While I can’t swear to the absolute accuracy of what you are about to read, I have done my best to capture the essence of how Pim entered my life.
Pim: I always enjoy meeting someone I resemble slightly.
Pim: I recently took an art course where I was encouraged to dispense with conventional notions of identity.
Pim: It’s important to daydream. That’s how August Kekulé discovered the Benzene Ring.

Pim: I dreamt that my jar turned inside out. That allowed me to see new aspects of myself.

Pim: Sometimes I’m mistaken for a virus but I’m really not harmful at all.
Pim: Thales said, “all things are full of gods.” If I listen carefully I can hear what they are saying about me.
