goodbye Jere


The heroes of my youth are passing away.

And while there are still mentors left to help guide the way,

I find I am the one more often doing the mentoring these days.

And so the cycle repeats itself, only this time

I find myself on the other end.  And the realization jolts me

and then finally settles in, as if I’ve known this

is what it would be, all along.

Goodbye Jere Brophy, you threw the most  amazing parties at AERA, and inspired me in so many ways.  Thank you, thank you for the Invisible College, and so many other wonderful things.
