Gardening does not only involve pruning, cutting, weeding to help bring about beautiful blooms; it also includes the gardener's choice to keep or take away parts of the plant. Same principle applies to taking on an editorial task; Al decides which materials to work on, or which ones to avoid, depending on the subject matter of the written content. Photo of bougainvilleas is from Al's home garden (2015).
