It is not uncommon that my emeritus colleagues have occupied themselves in doing science almost all their intellectual life, however some of them pursue their writer-debut in senior age. I did the opposite. The photo here below is from my writer-debut celebration, a dinner at the Club Alemán in Concepción in 1962. I was 19 years old. At 21 I became member of the Sociedad de Escritores de Chile SECH.
