Fledgling albatross are learning to fly in order to make their way out to sea.
Tiger sharks sense this and journey to the Northwest Hawaiian Islands by mid-summer.
I did some work on Midway tagging and tracking galapagos sharks with some amazing people from University of Hawaii and the Waikiki Aqauarium.
THE BEST LITTLE AQUARIUM IN THE WORLD.
Back to our regularly scheduled program.
This particular albatross was lucky, but the one just outside the screen was not so fortunate.
We will not be talking about birds today.
We will be talking about ideas...
8:30 pm and 77 degrees.
It was there. Just in the back of my mind. A thought. A premise.
Back again. I write ten pages. The story goes nowhere.
Why did I think that story had possibilities?
I dreamt about it last night. The plot worked perfectly. It was brilliant. In my dreams I walked to my computer and wrote it all down.
But alas, it was just my imagination.
In the morning my words appear sluggish and banal through my caffeine self-medication.
Some ideas take you all the way to the end of the story and back.
Like Lottery. Carrying me along in a river of inspiration.
It all came alive and wrote itself. Fully formed inside my brain.
Well lets just say.
But we are watchful and we wait.
For their return.
So tell me.
Which of yours eluded capture.
And got away.
