Patrick, thanks so much for posting this here…. A big oversight of mine to not have done so.
And isn't it funny – even as I saw your post, and even as I write this, my first thought is : ‘I wonder what Peter’s going to say to this ?’….
I'm of courses speaking for myself here, but perhaps also for some others on this list : Peter Waterman’s going has really created a huge void here, on WSMDiscuss; a void that is perhaps going to be impossible to fill…. He was there with us right from the beginning of WSFDiscuss, through into WSMDiscuss from earlier this year, and really was always so much larger than life. Always.
Gina, my thoughts - and if I can speak also on behalf of others on this list, our thoughts - are with you and with all those of you who are in The Hague now, and will be with you all on the 28th when you gather in his memory.
With an embrace -
(As per Patrick’s post, close family and friends are gathering in The Hague on Wednesday the 28th, at 2:30 pm local time. If I may, I'd like to suggest that all those on this list who wish to do so, might take a moment at that time to think of Peter, and perhaps even raise a glass in his honour….)
