Dedicated to


Your presence in my life is so alive and palpable

The subtle power of your experiments stretches across times

Sometimes, you are like the bright student in the class that makes everyone else look so unintelligent.

And I love you. I really do.

Thank you for being born. Thank you for pushing the boundaries of humanity forward. It is a privilege to be born in an era after you.

All I can say is WOW!
