Jack Elliot Myers
November 29, 1941 – November 23, 2009
Trying to capture a life and a spirit on a page is daunting, especially when that life belonged to a friend, mentor, and poet of incisive humorand stunning sensitivity. It was our hope that the many voices in this issue of Jack’s friends, colleagues, former students, and fellow seekers would help those who never knew him to understand how deeply we have been touched by his passing.
