tribute to a writing colleague

I was surprised and saddened to read on Thanksgiving of the death following a traffic accident in Dunedin FL of Louise Westenfield, whom I met at the Summer Literary Seminars in St. Petersburg Russia in 2005. Louise worked as a flight attendant with US Airways and, according to the report, had four children. She had also won various writing awards. I knew her in a playwriting course --she had written an interesting play about an airline emergency over water and the interplay among the crew.

Louise was friendly and very attractive but otherwise did not fit the usual stereotype of flight attendants--she was far too bright. RIP Louise.
