I'm sharing this for a couple of reasons...

1) OSO is simply an amazing and important organization.

2) I did the scientific illustrations on the board in front of the desk and had no idea they were still in use! So proud to see my work is still a part of OSOs mission!

O'Neill Sea Odyssey
Our first class of the season brought us a fantastic plankton sample right outside the San Lorenzo river mouth. Students of Bradley Elementary School from Watsonville and Program Manager/Marine Bio instructor Laura Walker identified at least a dozen species of plankton in six drops of water!

Big day today. About 3,200 words.

That's more than enough for now, I'm pooped. 10K away from finishing this latest book. Waiting on publisher feedback now, but with any luck, done well before the end of the month.

Not sure if you're watching The Orville, but it's grown on me... in spite of the last couple of episodes that I feel were highly overrated.

But I will say, I appreciate that the ensign who got spaced by the Kaylons was wearing a red shirt.

Had a really charming idea today for a micro-budget film... character driven, festival-friendly, quirky and unusual. Kind of excited.

Like I don't have enough to do.

I've had some of my most satisfying experiences with props making paper items... police reports, medical reports, work IDs, legal files, books, newspaper clippings (fun fact, I integrated old photos of my grandfather into some of the articles), old family photos...

My favorite was probably a box of vintage postcards used in Fat Rose and Squeaky [www.imdb.com/title/tt0476992/]. I researched which stamps would have been in use during the years the postcards were to have been sent, and then not only integrated those stamps but created matching dated postmarks in the right historical style.

This cool little doc gives you some idea of why this is so satisfying...

After a brief period where some guy from a cookie company in Texas and a hotrod designer stole my rankings from me, I'm back to owning the entire first page of Google results for the term Chip Street.

I even scored a Knowledge Panel!

Keep at it. Make good content.
