The author describes his career from leaving the Israeli Army in the summer of 1950 to date. He describes his work in optics during this time. He expresses his surprise by the wonderful and exciting opportunities afforded to him by the study of waves. Particularly exciting he feels was, and still is, the opportunity to surf these waves together with the very talented graduate students at the unique setting and ambiance of his (scientific) home for 36 years - Caltech.
