…at a desk, having presented my first paper in a conference attended by peers in my field.
…with satisfaction in the appreciation given by people who were genuinely interested by my talk.
…with the knowledge that the work i do makes some sense, somewhere.
…with 20 more ideas which excite me to a degree that i believe that something truly novel may come out of them.
…knowing that i am learning to stand for myself. 24 years after i learnt to stand in the first place.
