It is wonderful to have a job that inspires both of us and respects the respective contribution of the other. Anjani always surprises me with her musical ideas. On the quality of the songs she wrote for the album Blue Alert using some of my text fragments I was not prepared in any way. And it is really very pleasant to be surprised by someone you know for a long time after all these years.quotedown2
