I’d written about my serendipitous encounter with one of my all-time favorite childults, Mike Choly, in late September on my Childing blog. I was very sad to learn from his family yesterday that he had passed away — and this made me all the more glad I had the great opportunity to meet him and lock hearts and minds with such a vibrant, inquisitive, childlike soul who never lost his passion for imaginative questioning and answering, of a sort that could potentially lead one and all to new horizons. ┬áThank you, Mike, for brightening and enlightening our world.
