going to see some scholars speak from the field I left: feels 

At an upcoming event the speakers are scientists who I have read a fair but of their work. I haven't thought much about them in a while and I feel I'm moving forward with a different part of my life now. At one point I had deep technical/philosophical Qs I wanted their opinions on. I thoguht knowing where their ideas came from would help me plan where I would try to drive my own ideas. Now, I'm unsure how their thoughts lie in my life.

going to see some scholars speak from the field I left: feels 

@danwchan This is my second career (maybe thirdish?) and I understand that feeling - I'm really happy about the path I'm on now, but I hear bits and pieces about Career #1, or see people from it doing cool stuff and feel like I'm missing out a little, or wonder how the person I am now would do that job.
