~ My Dad created many things. Academic endeavors, like articles, courses, books, colloquia and degree programs. Houses, gardens and beautiful spaces. Memorable parties with wine that could not be too big or cuts of meat too thick. Puns.
And things for his kids, and later his grandkids, like an elaborate playhouse.
He taught me to take ideas and create something real and memorable. Thank you Dad.
