My work life is exploding this week — something major is happening in every area of my beat. As if the farm bill weren’t enough, we’ve got major breaking news on polar bear and fishies — oh my!

I am also, apparently, having some stress-related health problems. It’s nothing too serious, don’t worry. (more on it later.)  So, I am trying to remember that the world is a bigger place than my cube. There is a God in heaven above and much to rejoice over.

For instance: ribbon seals. Hello, have you ever seen a picture of one? Lookit above. What a cool animal!

I will be human again in a week or so.
