A family matter.

Family. Food. Warmth. Safety. Home.

These are the things I’m thinking about in the intensifying few days leading up to the holidays.

It always makes me think about our families of wildlife, out there in the elements, finding their way. I’m in awe of their resilience, their own unique family and social structures, and how they have adapted over millennia.  I wonder how they do it.

Couplet, 1991-2017


It feels like a death in the family.

The New England Aquarium Right Whale Research Program has just released confirmation of the death of the 13th right whale.

Couplet, #2123, was found on Monday, east of Cape Cod.
