Australian Time editor Steve Waterson celebrates his father-in-law, the late Len Evans:
One summer evening 15 years ago Len Evans grabbed a good bottle of burgundy and led me out to his veranda for the would-be son-in-law conversation. As the sun fell behind the Hunter Valley’s Brokenback range, we got to the part where he gauged my prospects. I was struggling with some banal career decision: one path boring but financially secure, the other much more interesting but relatively poorly paid. Seeking approval, I ventured that the sensible thing might be to go dull and safe. Len thought for a moment, turned to me and asked: “How many lives are you planning to have?”
US readers may not know of Len, a brilliant man whose quote above should compel you to read Steve’s entire piece. Other tributes from Anthony Rose, Max Allen, Jeff Collerson, and Leo Schofield. And here you’ll find a picture gallery.
