My dad is turning 75 this year and I found out that he is in the process of polishing a paper for a mathematical journal.

He's past all that publish or perish stuff. He just wanted to work on these problems. It really made my day to find out that he still found joy in his work and in sharing it.

Nice to hear your dad still derives pleasure from his work.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Just goes to prove that an active mind is integral to a happy retirement. [Wink]

Very cool! Nice to see that there's plenty of life after work (in fact, isn't that when most life happens? I guess it depends on the work)...
