We left the ferry terminal in a downpour this morning. There were over a hundred kids on board from the aquarium’s summer camp. On the way back, I was sitting in the pilot house. The kids started singing, “I don’t know but I’ve told, Mr. Sam (one of the counselors) is getting old.” Over and […]
I’m off Monday and Tuesday now, and that means I’m coming to the end of another weekend. I’ve been meditating on life, which a classy way of saying I’ve not done anything special on my days off. I went to yoga, went to the pool, rode my bike, worked on my resume, rented a couple […]

I have to finish two things this week: train my seasonal staff and prepare for a two-week long event. The event is the mating display of synchronous fireflies. This park […]
