Finale of the Day #2140

As of today I have officially left the lab, off to pursue other things in the City. Dan has done the same, though he’s already found his place in Industry. Lab folk who were available came out to eat together tonight – one last gathering before Dan and I vanish. Food and conversation were good, dreams and books and peculiar things, and everyone offered hugs as we parted; it was a nice way to end my time with them.

I’ve been working there for about a year and a half now, and I’ve seen several researchers and RAs go and new ones come to take their places. Labs like these are an endless fountain of thoughtful people, always changing; it gives life a strange ephemeral feeling that is probably more common than I realize.

Everyone here is brilliant, and their lives are going to be remarkable, and it was lovely to be a part of that for a while.
