This article presents the views of the author on family support. Anybody who has heard or read the author's inaugural address will know his father had a huge influence on his career choice. His family had their own mobile library. They used to call it the car. The author once had a school assignment to write a long poem in the style of a ballad. His father decided to make it a family project and they all sat for hours around the dining table, each of them charged in turn with supplying the next line. The author recalls a lot of laughter in the composing of that ballad.
