Rest in peace, teacher

Carol Bly has died.

The author, teacher, war protester and ex-wife of Robert "Iron John" Bly was my creative writing teacher when I took an accelerated writing class at St. Paul's Hamline University (my dad's alma mater) my junior or senior year in college at St. Thomas (St. Thomas and Hamline belong to the ACTC, the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities, and students at one school can take classes at any other.)

A compliment from her was high praise indeed, and I can still remember how a story from her could spellbound the entire class.
