Jerry had a really nice post that brought up some genuine emotion from both Gardner and me. It’s still Monday morning at the ELI 2006 Annual Meeting, but there already has been a lot of reflecting. I also have my work cut out for me to summarize what’s so great about being here (and it isn’t just the weather!). It’s quite apparent what a great community there is here. Lots of caring faculty, administrators and staff. Back home there are lots of caring people that I work with – Including Jerry, Martha, Jim, Patrick, Lisa, Pam, and of course Gardner (and many others). I’ve gotten to see so much passion from “Dr. Glu”, and it’s so inspiring. More reflections to come. Good luck to those at home dealing with family issues. We’re thinking of you!
