Please join us for the 2012 Noel King Memorial Lecture, next Thursday at UC Santa Cruz.  This year’s discussion is centered on the ethics and religious implications of economic responsibility:

    A wonderful idea since religious bigotry never seems to really go away, just doesn’t get mentioned much.

    What a great legacy. It occurs to me that to be an author is a kind of immortality. Great books live on and on. But to be a teacher is a kind of immortality, too. As a singing teacher, I always feel that my teachers are sort of perched on my shoulder as I teach. Occasionally, I hear Norma’s voice, or Chris’s come out of my mouth. It was particularly poignant in the days after Norma’s death. One of my own students one day told me that she said to a friend something that I say to my students on a regular basis. I wonder if any of my students will in turn become teachers. I wonder if Noel’s students (or children) are passing on his knowledge or find themselves saying things that he said.

      Yes, every day.
