A friend summed it up best: "There are Alberts in many parts of the world whose work go unnoticed and unrecognized all the time."
How does this sound (as a book title): "To all the Angels I've met before"
"To all the unsung Alberts in the world..."
Okok, no more cheese for the benefit of the lactose intolerant :)
This morning, I called Albert to apprise him of his 15 minutes of fairly anonymous fame. He didn't know I was going to do it of course.
I didn't either, up until last week, when I felt the story had matured sufficiently. A lot of encounters reside and percolate indefinitely - sometimes for too long - in my mind as half-baked stories, before they're eventually fleshed out and published. Anymore dithering and this one would probably gotten buried under other abandoned because yours truly got her knickers in a bunch over yet another fresh encounter ...
Albert, on the off chance that you're reading this, I hope this made your day.
