I am about to be promoted to the position I have always cherished: I am going back to being a psychiatric clinician. In this moment of remembrance, I want to recall that 35 years ago I arrived as an immigrant, whose future has now been realized thanks to your efforts and to your generosity. I want to render tribute to my family, to my wife, to my children, to my predecessors, to my teachers, to my colleagues, and to many others, including the many patients who have confided in me through the years. I want especially to honor my immediate predecessors, Drs. England, Eist, and Sacks, who opened the doors to the realization of many dreams.
