Reach out, don't be afraid. I've had that same feeling before: You want to open the feeder lines of communication but you don't know exactly what to say; let me help you. Share an idea with me, shoot me a suggestion, tell me never to wear socks with sandals, or just tell me how improve; I welcome it all.
