I’m not into beer or opera, so neither the death of Jackson or Pavarotti had much emotional impact for me.
But L’Engle was partially responsible for instilling a love of literature at an early age. I remember reading a Wrinkle in Time under the covers of my bunk bed, wishing that I could have hot cocoa with Meg, Charles Wallace, and Mrs. Whatsit.
And McCready’s win of the Kremer prize influenced me to leave cryonics and work on prize institution design. I plan to establish a similar prize for cryonics someday.
Sigh. Must work faster.
