Listening to every heart
My best is resting right now. It is difficult to assimilate life, poetry, strength, without a Balladeer in our lives. I may speak for many, maybe only myself. To know such a teacher; one, who gave willingly; never hestated on politic; spoke that brilliant mind: it was no wonder Ron took you up as a contemporary.
Thanking you in memory, Michael, for your deeds in teaching, your way of making everyone welcome, your ability to register silent sarcasm, and especially for the debates. You were a learning curve of the greatest design, a true Leo Who became silent too soon.
