Abstract: I plan to briefly sketch some of the joy that mathematics has offered me.
This will lead to reflections about the mathematical community. These
topics naturally lead to consideration of challenges facing the
mathematical research and education community (and the scientific
community, more broadly) and thoughts about the future.
