Introduction I have always loved the sounds of words. Even before I knew the meaning of words I loved their sounds. This sentence from "The Night Before Christmas" was a treat to me long before I knew of wild hurricanes or obstacles. "As dry leaves before the wild hurricane fly/when they meet with an obstacle mount to the sky." So I feel lucky that I have been able to play around with words for so many years--and am still playing.
