It's been a busy Wednesday. I gave a noon seminar and then had a great tour of the state's aquarium. It was fun to give a talk on something that I've studied. That's the best kind of discussion: allowing interaction with the audience through questions.
It was nice to get a behind the scenes tour of the aquarium. There were cultures of jellyfish larvae and a few quarantined animals. I find the jellyfish so relaxing. I remember visiting Monterey aquarium and sitting for hours just watching the jellies pulsate. A tank of jellyfish would be a great stress reliever.
After all of that, I went down to row with a group that I haven't seen in a while. We used to get together regularly to row on the Harbor. Tonight was a good night for it, with a good breeze and clear skies. No serenity breakers today. Just a day of getting things done and enjoying all the different aspects of what I had to do. It's nice to just be and enjoy the moments of happiness that seem to be occurring more and more frequently.
