Poem for Saturday

I spent lots of time Friday watching, reading and discussing the news (see previous post for details). The rest of my day wasn't all that eventful: I wrote a (short, uninspired, but fairly positive) review of Star Trek: The Next Generation's "Captain's Holiday", picked up Adam from school in the pouring rain, exchanged letters about Daniel's health class with his high school principal (likely conclusion: by the time we can get this resolved, it will be two weeks into the school year and not worth messing up his schedule), had dinner with my parents and found ancient treasures in the drawers in my old desk in my childhood the map of the world has changed in 30 years.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is in the news because it has a great white shark in its Outer Bay exhibit, which we saw when we were there in July. Here are some more photos from the aquarium, both inside the exhibits and from the balconies outside overlooking the water:
