Coffee Log, Year 2, Day 268


Coffee:  Maxwell House Master Blend, Office Coffee

M told me a story about a shark. Big-boned, young, named Cabot, a Great White. Cabot has a twitter feed that tracks his location. Recently, he’s been moving down south along the Carolina coast. He found the sound then got stuck in a river. He gets turned around a lot. In a few days, M will be staying in a cabin in that river just a few feet above him.

Sometimes I’m thinking about sharks. A vast life, ocean waves. What is it to be so separate from everything gong on up here? Even when you can taste the melting glaciers, there’s ten thousand pounds of water between you and anything you can do about it.

Cabot will (God hoping) have a long life. He’ll make his way out of the river and back to crisper waters. As of today, Cabot has 13.7k twitter followers. I understand, he’s quite a looker.

Today we can see that @GWSharkCabot is making some big moves south. He’s filing down the Delmarva Peninsula in the footsteps (or tail wash??) of several other sharks who passed by here in the previous few weeks.
