When I woke up this morning and decided to catch up on world affairs via cnn.com, I found out about the passing of one of France’s greatest national treasure: Marcel Marceau. I felt really sad. I still remember the time I skipped a NuRhoPsi meeting just so I could be one of the many people sitting in the Lyric opera house during the one night he was going to perform in TheCityThatReads. I got so caught up in the silent imaginary world he created for us, I did not want to leave. I still regret not having had the courage to try to make my way backstage for his autograph and to hear him speak.
Goodbye Bip. I hope that wherever you have gone, you will continue to be fascinated by the world around you.
