Well, my friends, it was a blast. OK, I'll bite: here is the official
place to post your favorite moments and memories. I'd love to hear
anyone's thoughts on the experience, so please hit "reply" & add on...
--Elmira College and the Center are in great hands: Joe & Matt and staff
did spectacularly and I am so grateful having them at the helm. Well
done: many people remarked on their enthusiasm and vision going forward.
--Much stirring talk about humor, satire, wit, jokes, and/or some variation
of that subject area, over several sessions: turns out Jim Caron is quite
the humorist! Except he may not like being called that... and everyone I
consulted agrees that it should have been real whiskey, not iced tea, they
--Japan wins again for most represented nation outside the USA!! Otsukare
sama deshita!! One scholar, a Syrian national, was unable to join us due
to the travel ban -- which we learned from a tearful Matt Seybold. Matt
was not the only person moved to tears over the weekend by the way ...
--Great turnout and good weather -- and as usual, it was the PEOPLE
involved that made being at Elmira 2017 very special and memorable.
gratefully, --Hal B.
