I hope this won't be my last trip to Antwerp! Spending time with Pascale Pollier-Green, Chantal Pollier, and Ann Van de Velde was tremendous; such inspiring medical artists! Looking ahead to Vesalius 2014, I feel we shall all meet again, in our creative capacities, on the soil where Andres Vesalius rests...
