Double Rainbow

Recently, I have felt as though the universe is shitting directly on my face, but every once and a while I am reminded that I should be grateful.  This morning I was treated with another lovely rainbow outside of Steven's window (double rainbow!).  And the sunset last night was none to shabby either...

In the unending discombobulating life event that has been moving off of Coconut, I found a few interesting pieces of memorabilia that I decided to photo document. These are the posters that I shot at a while back when Kevin Flannigan taught me how to use a Glock! I wasn't a terrible shot :) I kept thinking about the guy who is in the bottom picture and how he feels having been the model that people shoot at, day in, day out.   I suppose you can't really see his face, but you can see he has a wedding band. I wonder what his story is.

Just had a pretty productive and extremely helpful meeting with a committee member and feeling like maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Ceramics class tonight. Back to work for now.

From Steven's window this morning...

Here we go

It's my last week of boats on Coconut and I am definitely feeling the twinges of nostalgia that I expected. It's funny, when you drive boats back and forth, it can become tedious and you begin to take for granted that you are on a tropical island, ferrying people back and forth across the azure waters. Tonight, the moon has painted everything silver and the sky clear and quiet.  Being a resident here means everyone is in your business all the time, and everyone knows I am moving off. Tonight, every other person has said "you'll probably be happy not to do boats anymore, huh?" And I can't help but think, I'll probably miss it. Living in the same place for three and a half years is unusual for me. It's a long stretch of time... I went for a swim on Sunday and took a picture of my favorite spot.

Hopefully moving off will be a boon for me and help me to finish my work. Right now I feel like it may have been a mistake, but it's no use thinking like that. I need to focus on work and get those three letters so I can finally move on with my life. I have been doing a lot of writing lately, and this popped up somewhere--I thought it was relevant...

This also seemed pretty relevant, especially given what I study. I am the person who went to school to study the freaky invertebrates do it!
