Thought you’d enjoy this slide show of the various and remarkable waterbirds that Theodore Cross has photographed, compliments of The New York Times.

[Cross’ voice reminds me a little of my UCLA professors–very monotone and non-exuberant, but hang in there, it’s still interesting…]

Cross photographed many of his birds on Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean.  The slide show reminded me of my ten-day trip to the Galapagos Islands back in ’98.  One of my deepest desires is to take Dan and Liliana some day; it’s so amazing, especially in light of evolutionary theories set forth by Darwin…and the geologic study of the vastly different volcanic islands.

There’s so much diverse beauty around us, isn’t there?

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
