Rock on! Love hearing about Lane’s books/process! AND on the same day the peeps at “7 Impossible Things” put out an interview with him! A double dose! Still not enough! Great stuff!

Jules: Fabulous interview at 7-imps today (as usual)

Andy: I agree re: not enough. Even if we count the 45 minutes that didn’t make it to the published show.

Terry: No wonder we’re wild for Lane’s books, eh? He’s a genius!

Thanks to each of you for stopping in and for sharing your thoughts.
