Being Head of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at Sydney has been an experience like no other. I wanted to insert other phrases in that sentence. But I defrained partly out of politeness, partly because it is difficult to be accurate about something that is akin to experiencing a complicated, unpredictable force of nature.

I look forward to the long calculations, the more relaxed conversations, the dreaming about intricate equations again. My family look forward to having my heartspace and mindspace back, as much as I can give it.
