We felt compelled to ask Jean about this photo of herself that we came across while doing research.
Says Jean: “My friends and I in graduate school (late 50’s) went up to Crane Beach in Ipswich, Mass., to have some fun. So they buried me and we took pictures of my head looking chopped off, as you see. Actually, you get a new perspective on yourself when you see your disembodied head like that. The friends all got their degrees and went on to distinguished careers.”Now, more than ever, it makes sense that Jean’s favorite language is Sand-skrit.
