Good morning Mr. Klein,

Thank you for your all inspiring Zine. I'm a new Substacker. Zine is my very first Subscription.

I've always been influenced by those that invent new words; my first being, of all people, "Ringo Starr". I'm writing a follow up to your " Make up a Word", Called " Preservation of Cultures". I look forward to reading and listening to your Blog.
