Do you prefer to remain something of an enigma so that readers are more likely to "construct meanings of their very own, in their very own brains"? Do you deny that your work is often a gateway to a lifelong affection for and fascination with the surreal (and if so, why have so many people I know had that experience with your work)?
Can it be that many people you know tend experience things in a way that reinforces their affection for and fascination with the surreal? I don't know why you suggest that I am an enigma. I think I am the opposite of an enigma. I think I am a non-enigma. I don't think it's my job to influence readers. I've explained this already. My responsibility is to write it so it's not painful to read. After that, you're on your own.
