  1. Interesting interview, Al. Enjoyed getting to know you better. 🙂 “I love language and playing with words, and follow them down alleys and cul-de-sacs to see what might become of them.” Wonderful way to express your creative journey of weaving words.

    Keep writing Al. If only because I, very selfishly, enjoy it all 🙂
