[October 1994]
Description:
In mid-October 1994, just a few days after the Nobel Foundation named him as Nobel Laureate, Rodbell sent e-mail copies of this poem to a number of recipients and prefaced it with this paragraph: "Thought it a good idea to write a 'poem' and some philosophical thoughts. After all, not everyday does it happen that I am placed on a pedestal and looked at as if I were someone else (God or G-protein, whatever). Anyhow, this is my way of expressing gratitude, love, affection, and the many good feelings I have for all of my friends and colleagues. . . So here's to you all--with love." This poem was also published in "Les Prix Nobel: The Nobel Prizes 1994," edited by Tore Frängsmyr, Nobel Foundation, 1995: 203.
