As I start to compose this email, the time on my computer
is reading 18:50 hours. And elsewhere on the planet
Precisely where you are in the shallow land of Ether,
it is just 10 minutes to midnight, wait it is just 9 minutes to
midnight and I have exactly 9 minutes left to finish this email.
It is your Birthday, is it not ?
And it is good to hear from your friends and family,
after all, we are like trees, and we need our
environment to flourish, else a wandering
goat might just bite the sapling and kill
it right and there; alas, the plant would have lost
the potential to live, to soar high,
to see other trees, the sky, the stars
from a greater height.
It is 7 minutes now.
I better hurry up.
I have known you for a year and a half,
and on the way back Sao Paulo on
the 23rd of October, little did I know that
a friendship will blossom.
Yes, indeed we did.
Six minutes now.
I listen to Pietro Mianiti as I wrote. Helps me to concentrate.
You have been a wonderful friend,
to listen to each other’s musings
as well as our good times with Emé.
We did have good times.
I hear that you are coming on the 31 of February
after conquering successfully the CRISPR-CAS
and other such tricks.
Congratulations to you my dear friend.
You have the weight on you,
just as Atlas is carrying the Earth on him
and you are doing pretty well.
I Wish you a very happy Birthday on this wonderful day.
I wish that you learn more and share your experience with
students and researchers alike, wherever you are.
Good night my Friend.
Time to just add a picture.
A minute left.
Hurray, I made it.
