I spent the summer of 2008 in Seward, Alaska, to get a break from Tucson's summer heat as well as to get a new perspective on life after a bad breakup. I spent two hours a day volunteering at the Alaska SeaLife Center, one hour of which was spent in the seabird exhibit. It was a remarkable privilege that I'll never forget and some of the most blissful meditation I've ever experienced. I was by myself in the exhibit much of the time, and the opportunity to just be present with the seabirds was a tremendous honor. Getting photos such as this one of a tufted puffin spread its wings was an added bonus.
