We were deeply, genuinely moved by the time you gave to be there and the words you wrote. Of course, special thanks to Paul for the gracious proffering of his stately venue, plus full plates and glasses; Raymond Wong, the roving Mr. Alumni; Eswar Mani, especially for posting this note (The delay is entirely my [Mrs. Hauet’s] fault.); Ricky Dasdeb; Koh Terai — and to Sab Kagei, who chauffeured us that evening, then spent his time taking treasured photos.
Edward Suzuki, Class of 1966, has released an English version of his book GOoD Design Philosophy, with new endorsements by Deepak Chopra, Ervin Laszlo, Bruce Lipton, Michael Schneider and Lynne Twist. In Edward’s words, “ ‘GOoD Design’ is a play on words I came up with to reflect my belief that Nature and the Universe are, in all their physical and poetic elegance, God’s greatest work of architecture. To me, ‘God’ and ‘good’ are one and the same.”
The book is available from the following sources:
