“Continually I am reminded, humbled as well as astounded (damn you, Kagey), of your ability to always think of other people first. A sort of genuine caring toward others that extends far beyond gracious, but it’s like an insight-driven empathy.
Modest and passionate, you continue to find new ways to create. You blend an analytical intelligence and emotional impact with historical importance and modern relevance. Acamdemic curiosity and exploration guided by inherent meaning and connection with people. You ask difficult questions that provoke introspection and you understand how to guide others without steering too tightly. The capacity to keep all those aspects kinetic make you unique and an inspiration for others.”
