Sleeping More than Ever

    After nearly 20 hours of travel, I landed in Aspen, Colorado on April 8th. Then I took a 2 hour nap, woke up, slept for 11 hours and then did the same the following night, and could have done the same again yet had to get to work.

    This adventure all feels a bit surreal. Yet, it was SO real. Now the Arctic sea ice and Arctic Ocean are not just an image in National Geographic magazine for me; they are landscapes (ocean-scapes) I have a relationship with. The place is now part of me and I am part of it.
