Why ‘kevishere’?

No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.” — Terry Pratchett

I started this blog in January 2010, and wasn’t exactly sure what to name it. I thought about various iterations related to biological anthropology, or possibly something about war and health. Ultimately I decided to go with ‘kevishere’ after my late brother, Kevin. Perhaps that’s confusing to new visitors, and recently I thought about changing it to something that might be more on-topic. Instead, I’ve decided to keep it. 

One thing that anthropology has taught me is that ours is an obligatorily social species, and we have been so from the beginning. I’ve written before that our social connections — the ones that matter the most — are among life’s highlights. And though I know that my brother is no longer here in the physical sense, he is here in other ways. All connections leave their mark. Thanks for visiting.

  1. I am so glad that you decided to keep “kevishere” rather than renaming the blog. I am also proud to hear you say that there is a “living” connection to your brother–which I know to be true from my son, Kevin. There is very much a living connection in many ways. That connection is what binds us to humanity. No?
