Thanks to this episode with Rex Jung, as well as several other public radio shows I listen to (including RadioLab and Soundcheck) I got ideas for this personal essay I wrote on the brain, memory, and my mom, who recently died of brain lymphoma.

The Blue-Eyed Man in a Suit

I've written quite a bit about my mom over the last year. Other pieces I'm proud of include these:

Mom, 1938-2011

Eating Sushi at Stoplights (published in Crate Literary Magazine)

And the eulogy I read at her funeral:

Thank you for your show. I enjoy it very much and it gives me a lot to think about in my life.
