    The very heart of your writing while sounding agreeable in the beginning, did not work properly with me after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do well to help fill in all those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I will surely be fascinated.
