Two questions: How does a New England summer go by so fast, and didn’t you love the Brandeis Magazine foodie issue and its white cover? Now we head into fall and winter, and we will complain about the cold just as soon as we have stopped complaining about the heat! Personally, I’ve had the joy of recent visits with my former Brandeis roommates: Leni Winn, who took a trip with her husband, Andrew Tuck, to Turkey; Beverly Sachs Silpe, who (along with her hubby, Paul) hosted me at their home in Long Beach, N.Y., where we gazed at the ocean from their balcony; and Annette Liberman Miller ’58, who performed again at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Mass. I do think Annette gets more accomplished every year! I am hoping to lift my head up from mastering my switch from a PC to a Mac, my iPhone, iPad and Kindle in time to enjoy Reunion, which will be right around the corner in 2012! Fifty-five years? And we’re all still 21, except do our bodies tell us otherwise?

Robin Brooks donated more than 70 items of Leonard Bernstein memorabilia from his personal collection to the Robert D. Farber University Archives. He started the collection in 1956, when he worked for Maestro Bernstein at Tanglewood, and continues collecting items to this day.
