When I think about my interactions with Michele over the past twenty years, I think of global adventures, hearty laughter, copious amounts of white wine (which must always be tasted first before committing to a full glass), and delicious cuisine in fancy restaurants, interspersed with some academic talks and research discussions. More than anyone I know, Michele is always up for an adventure and is fearless in her embrace of the new and unfamiliar. While her home base will change with her move to Stanford, something tells me the "go go go" attitude of Michele will continue, and we will barely notice a difference. I am grateful that she will be a car ride away from me in California, but I am under no illusion that her break-neck pace of travel in service of her passion for culture will subside. I enjoy watching Michele's boundless energy, in awe from the sidelines.
