    May I ask for the below to be posted on the CAR newsletter?
    Dear all,
    Great many thanks to the wonderful team that managed to lead us through the first and hopefully last Virtual Academy Meeting. Yet, I wish to offer the following as a personal reflection:
    A Conference Poem: I miss
    I miss being with my friends and colleagues
    I miss the buzz around 
    I miss the choice of many real life sessions
    I miss the serendipity of attending sessions I did not plan to attend, just because I bumped into it
    I even miss running from one hotel to the other, sometime giving up a session, because I saw a good old friend walking the opposite way
    I miss real life Meeting
    And mostly I miss hugging my friends.
    I will not miss this year.
    C U next year!
    Yehuda Baruch

    Dear Yehuda and hello to all Friends and Colleagues,

    Thank you so much for writing up 'our' feelings in such a wonderful way.

    We are so grateful to the team that made the impossible possible! The preparations for AoM must have taken an enormous effort and flexibility. I am with you  in thanking them VERY WARMLY. 

    At the same time, yes we had to miss what you have expressed so beautifully. 

    I can ascertain you that will bump into me next year as well ;)

    Yours, Beatrice van der Heijden
