Noel Polk as I prefer to remember him--world-weary cosmopolitan. In England to drive to Max Gate.

I'm going to grieve later. Right now I am annoyed with him for not seeing us in Oxford, Mississippi, in June 2007 because he had business in Arkansas and not letting us drive up from Meridian to see him in February 2012. And I am more than annoyed with him for dying so very young.

  1. Noel taught me Moby-Dick, and made me love it. And him. I still read it. I'm reading it now... Your Norton edition, of course. I gave him all sorts of junk with whales on it after that... Maybe I should thank you too. For Moby-Dick, and all of the photos.
