Ehud Havazelet, my closest and longtime colleague, was the greatest--fiery, brilliant, unstinting, mercurial, and very very loving of his students and our shared enterprise of creating lasting work. Though his own fiction was often characterized as psychological realism, I thought of it as elegiac, stately, with a terror at the center of it, though it was not for mere death, but for a paucity of mind, a life without serious reflection. As he is now, where he is now, I see him on the seat of nirvana, reflecting upon us all, inspiring us to acts of mind and the exercise of serious consciousness. Me ke aloha, Ehud, I have for you aloha in my heart. Without you, we are an absence, the vast landscape around us with no spring blossoms or the autumn leaves of maple. You are the evening that descends, firing the roofs and west-facing walls of our homes in the bright flame of a setting sun. Garrett Hongo
