The same can be said about my retirement date. There is a flurry of things to do. However I would like to thank folks whom I have worked with in this last week of my life of travail.
We have a big deal meeting over the last couple of days with the Weizmann Institute, https://www.weizmann.ac.il/pages/ and IST Austria, https://ist.ac.at/
All their senior like people are here and I believe this is the last presentation I will have to give in my professional life.
All said and done, by miles the high point of the day, was a retirement gift from Yamada sensei.
It has been a great privilege to become friends with Yamada sensei and his family. I am very touched when he gives me two cups to mark my retirement.
Life is good.
Wow! What fine cups. Although too good to risk for daily use, the occasional beer would be justified. When I went they showed me the door and asked for the key.
So the longer I have been in Okinawa the more I have understood about their pottery. Yamada sensei is truly a master.
