    …thanks so much, Matt! I’m already counting on Felix and Annike brainstorming on some sort of whitmanic project. To the future! All yours, Karen

    Dear Karen, I am packing up my NYC apartment and just came across your syllabus from 2001! You were my professor at Columbia almost ten years ago and I still remember you fondly. You were so supportive and kind. Thank you for encouraging me to get the PhD. I did, and now I’m teaching too. Your baby is beautiful.

    Congratulations, Dr. Seijas! :) I’m so happy to hear such good news from you… remembering your energy and intelligence, I know how you’ll excel on the other side of the big desk. Thank you so much for the kind words, too! Warm wishes always, Karen.

    It´s a girl!!!! It´s a girl!!!! Finally she is here! Congratulations from Spain to the parents. Guess this will be a very special christmas for you two having that little “Christkindl” now. A big big big hug for both-but wow, I forgot, you are three now, so a big big big hug for all of you! Ramón

    PS: What a funny coincidence that “cousin-german”, don´t you think so, I looked-up in my on-line dictionary the word cousin because I thought as it´s a french word there is an american way of writing and so I stumbled across this expression for first cousin and in my case first “german” cousin. You got it?

    How beautiful! You have to love that little face there! Congratulations to the two of you, and welcome to the world little girl!! I’ve had such great experiences with you as my professor, I can only imagine the doors and opportunities you’ll create for your daughter. I imagine she’ll be an avid world traveler with a loving family like yours. Congratulations again! Best, Nicole
