Hi, if you’re searching here, I’m pleased to meet you. I do so hope that you are enjoying your visit. I’m Aly and I tend to resist pigeonholes. If you do feel the need, I can be classified as a librarian, historian and writer, trying to make sense of the present through the lenses of the past… my passions include history, music, politics, education, comedy and good wine! And as you join me on my journey, you’ll find that I truly believe that life has a soundtrack! Have fun and welcome.
