Remembering my friend Dick Shoup

Just as I was preparing to post this image and thought to the Dia.BLOG.ue, an email dropped into my inbox. Seeing that it was from my friend and colleague, Lou Kauffman, I smiled, hit the 'save' button here, and opened his mail to see what was up.

His message was short and sad, telling me that yesterday our dear friend Dick Shoup lost his 3-year battle with cancer. In 1998 at a meeting in Cambridge, England, Dick christened me "The Cosmic Engerizer Bunny" --no batteries needed, and my power source invisible. It was a memory we laughed about over lunch a few months ago.

While Dick's fight with cancer is over, his legacy, a lifelong Dance with Love continues, and today he's in a cosmic pirouette, on to his 'next'.

Dick, if you're still hanging around --which I doubt--- know that I will always remember; your spirit, open mind and heart touched my life and I am better because our paths crossed time and time and time again. No doubt they will again.
