På Gjensyn -- Until we meet again

Dear Colleagues and Friends:

It has been an honor and a privilege to have been associated with
this Laboratory for the past 24.5 years. I wish all of you the
greatest success in whatever the future may bring.

In particular, I hope that Los Alamos National Laboratory continues
to be an attractive and rewarding place to do some of the best
science in the world.

For my part, I am beginning a new career at the Center for the
Physics of Geological Processes at the University of Oslo, in Norway.
I leave immediately (3/26), and Susan will follow in the summer. We
will deeply miss all of our friends in the communities of Los Alamos
and Northern New Mexico while we are in Oslo, but hope that our path
will bring us back home once again someday.

Galen Gisler


It has been a pleasure knowing you during the last 18 years. Best wishes in your new carreer.

Kjære Galen!

Jeg har sett dit postet på Den Blogen i dag. Jeg skulle har kontaktet deg tidliger, når jeg hørte at du vil gå til Norge, men jeg trodde at min norsk var for dårlig. (Kanskje kunne du sende meg noe e-brever i norsk, så at jeg kan øvelse--når du har tiden senere, selvfølgelig.)

Oslo er en veldig vakkre by, og du og din familie vil elske det, jeg er sikker. Beste lykke i din nye løpebane! -Bort fra det Laboratorium, er det.

Mange hilsener fra
-Brad Lee Holian

Dear Galen:

I have seen your post on The Blog today. I should have contacted you earlier when I heard that you were going to Norway, but I thought my Norwegian was WAY too bad. (Maybe you could send me some e-mails in Norwegian, so that I can practice--when you have the time later, of course.)

Oslo is a very beautiful city, and you and your family will love it, I am sure. Best of luck in your new career! -Away from the Lab, that is.

Best wishes from
-Brad Lee Holian
