[Xmca-l] Re: Joe Glick



Joe Glick died this morning. He was my mentor, graduate advisor, and lifelong dear friend. The first time I ever saw him, I had a huge crush on him, this scholar in his large bluish gray office. I worked in Sylvia Scribner's lab on the sixth floor of the CUNY graduate school and would walk down the back steps to the fifth floor just to walk by his office several times a day and observe him sitting there surrounded by books and gadgets and often students and colleagues. I stood outside of his classes to listen in before I became his student. That was 1990. Finally one day, I met him. I sat down in his office and we started what became a lifelong conversation. We used to chat between offices on the 90s version of the internet, long streams of witty one liners back and forth. I fell in love with language through those interactions. Joe became my advisor through a PhD that took me as long as I could make it last, 15 years. He protected me from the administration, received me for hours every time I walked into his office or his apartment. He asked me hard questions and told me hard truths. He made me think and work hard and read and write. I visited him twice in the past few months, once in the hospital and once at home. He called me the day after I was laid off just a few weeks ago with advice and warmth and worry. I had just left him a message the day before yesterday saying I was coming next week again to see him at his house. I thought he was getting better. I saw him as recovering. And he was so funny and so undramatic when I visited him that I was sure of it. I told him how much he meant to me and how much I loved him when I visited him in the hospital in April, and for that I am so glad. I'm grateful for this wonderful person and so terribly sad that he is gone.
