Abstract: A miscellany of thoughts gathered before, during and after the meeting is assembled here. I attempt to illustrate the extraordinary range in observing tools that has become available since I took my first steps in 1960 towards the field of cosmic abundances. Serendipity is highlighted as a source of particular delight for observers. A commentary on the apparent discrepancies between the 6Li and 7Li abundances of metal-poor dwarfs on the Spite plateau is presented to show the breadth of disciplines that may be gathered under the umbrella represented by a single problem in spectroscopic astrophysics involving cosmic abundances.
