Relaunching Saturday lunches

August 16, 2014

So the first of hopefully many more lunch gatherings took place today. Healthy turnout of nine, good food, enjoyable conversations all round that make grad student life meaningful beyond the classroom, as we get to know one another better. Topped off by coffee and ice cream sandwiches at a nearby cafe, and then I did some research work for my MarSec paper at the library.

Overall, I think it was a good day well spent:)


Turning Forty

February 17, 2013


Actually with everything that has been said over the past eight months, I feel all talked out. Hence there is a reluctance to pen something to mark today, especially if it’s meant to be profoundly meaningful.

Four Oh is a big thing in a lot of places. It’s a big thing for me too. So my wish is that everything goes well tomorrow, and every day forward reaffirms why I’ve been here for the past forty years, and reminds me of what’s really important, and what is it I’m here to do.
