Nicholas Hughes, R.I.P.

This is too bad, he was only 47 & he studied salmonids, the best of the fish world. I never liked his mother's writing or her life-drama, but I found his father, Ted Hughes, to be a great & wonderful poet. Obit here.
...and it offered a kind of blessing to Nicholas, who had long kept the literati at bay:

So leave her.

Let her be their spoils. Go wrap

Your head in the snowy rivers

of the Brooks Range.
