What have we done? is an anthology compiled by Alan Maley. Alan is a wonderful example of lifelong creativity and one of the people in ELT that have profoundly inspired me. In this anthology I and fellow colleagues from some 20 countries have responded to Alan’s invitation to reflect on the destructive role of humankind on life on earth.
It has been a sheer pleasure to experiment with my creative writing skills in this book. I got a sense of pleasure and satisfaction while in the writing process and felt how important mutual encouragement and support can be so I am thankful to Alan for setting this up and inviting us to be a part of it.
Special thanks also to my friend Arnold Mühren for sharing and supporting my interest in creative writing, for his precious advice and for having his own very special way with words.
