ECM sessions

Dear Bill

I always appreciate your excellent photographs which appear in the IUCr's prestigious organ. I happened to notice one in the ECM-18 report where the participants were described as being 'in Phase and ready for Transition'. This is true to the extent that our minds were in phase with the science and, poised for your photograph, we were ready for synchronous transition to lunch. Incidentally, the caption strongly implies an association with the microsymposium on Phase Transitions when, in fact, we were at the parallel session on Neutron Scattering. Am I still coherent?
