    I just heard from Terry Galen and was so delighted to hear that you are still working, and being a provost no less!
    I left Smith two years ago, and have been teaching in another doctoral program, writing, and seeing about 20 people. All good things…Zeke is a city councilor in Baltimore with a wonderful wife and delicious two year old daughter; Jake’s working for a foundation in Austin and awaiting his first child…married to a smart cookie. Lew’s newest book on assisted dying just came out and he’s retiring from Baystate soon, but onto the next book, and we feel very blessed. My best to you and the girls ( women).
