I met Mel in Central Square; he sat down with me to eat his brunch. “I was one of the first Biomedical Engineers at Mass General.” We talked about Engineering, photography, and books. “Have you ever read Márquez? He was one of the first Latin-Americans to win a Nobel Prize in literature.” He showed me a note on the inside of the book. ‘My wife had left me this book to read, before she passed away. I thought it was about time I got around to it.’
