I got reminded today that it was 15 years since Sasha Chislenko left our community.
I decided to upload a recent picture of the Tanner Fountain at Harvard in memory of him: https://flic.kr/p/sgD5EY
Whenever I visualize regret, I think of this fountain.
In 1999 I visited Boston, staying with Alexander Chislenko. He took me to the fountain and suggested I'll dance with him in the mist. Shyly I refused, watching him dance among the rocks. I told myself that there would be other opportunities.
But May 8 2000 he died. I will never get a chance to properly take him up on his offer to celebrate life and spontaneity.
So next time someone offers a dance in a fountain, take the chance.
