  1. I'm delighted to be working with Walter on this. We have some very sustaining connections - and some positive differences in age and experiences. Also, we are both highly enthusiastic when it comes to reading.
    I had made a decision to embark on more collaborative projects wherever possible. This is going to be one of my favourites, I know.
