Have you said “Thank You” in time?
Posted by markharrison on February 19, 2007
This evening, I’ve been correcting the final draft of my new book.
In chapter 3, I make reference to an old teacher of mine (A P Tatt, my physics teacher at school), who taught me not only about physics, but about how to actually think.
Considering I left the school in 1989, it’s an impressive tribute to his teaching skill that I can remember him, and many of the things he taught me, some 18 years later.
Anyway, in recognition of this, I was searching the Internet for him this evening, because I’d intended to send him a copy of the book in question. What I actually found on Google was a reference to the school website, listing the date in 2005 on which he had died – not even an obituary.
So, in honour of Mr. Tatt, today is “have you said thank you?” day.
