WILL D. CAMPBELL - Wake up to the meaning of his NO






The Slow as Molasses Press

Will Campbell and I 
were colleagues and friends 
from the day we met 
in Swannanoa 
in the spring of 1961 
until now and 
whenever. 

Though Will died 
last night 
(June 3, 2013) 
I feel his presence 
keenly 
and will continue 
to do so. 

For me 
this video 
says it all. 

It was Will's 
NO 
to anything 
that did not include all 
that shamed 
those around him 
into hostility or 
the wonderment 
that leads to 
understanding. 

Will created 
a great deal 
of wonder 
while earning 
the spite of 
the usual suspects.  

I do not like
anniversaries
Life moves on
This is not to
"remember Will"
It is to wake 
us up
to the
meaning
of
his NO
