I've been traveling, and sorting through what to say; thus, a week late to mourn the loss of one of the great poets, writers, thinkers, and conservationists this country has produced.
William Stanley (WS) Merwin passed away a week ago at the age of 92. He lived on Maui since the 1970s, so I was able to see him quite often. He was remarkable. Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Poet Laureate of the US, etc.
