I don't know where I first heard about Craig Arnold's disappearance. An accomplished poet and faculty member at the University of Wyoming, Arnold was fascinated with volcanoes, and went missing during a trip to Japan to study and write about them on his blog, Volcano Pilgrim. Once news of his disappearance got out, help came from all over: from his fellow faculty members, from the Japanese authorities, from friends and readers around the net; the show of love and concern was amazing. Unfortunately, despite everyone's best efforts, Arnold is now presumed dead. My heart goes out to his family.
