@Jacobevans 2/3 So, I've two gentle insights to offer -- things for you to consider and weigh. Don't do anything because I suggest it; address these issues only if doing so feels right to you.

First: beware preciousness. If Michael the Mormon is named for obvious reasons (and he is), consider whether you want to call out that obviousness by saying it's obvious. If, in talking to me, you'd say a phrase like "the bird's dawn chorus," then keep it. If you wouldn't, then reconsider it.
