Advice for Writers

Poet Jake Adam York died unexpectedly on Sunday. He was 40. He taught at the University of Colorado. He was an undergraduate at Auburn. I was never his teacher at Auburn, at least, not exactly: he was in no class of mine. But we spent a lot of time together and many of his friends were students of mine. And we all talked a lot about poetry and about writing and about living. It is strange to think of him no longer out there (waving westward), writing. –Memory eternal!
