in medias res: sudden realisations.

so today i attended two seminars, and a similar moment occurred in each:

the speaker would eventually get to issues of regularity theory, i'd turn a bit to see others' reactions, and only see nods.
wow: these are my people.
i'm no expert at this stuff, but we all really have similar skill-sets
this is going to be something i'll miss: after leaving finland and joining another department where analysis isn't too dominant, it's slightly harder to develop a comraderie with colleagues. less in common, you know?

in mathematics it's rare to be understood, so i appreciate it whenever possible.
