My research group took Wednesday off and went to a Padres day game against the Braves, which was just phenomenal. Don't get me wrong, San Diego has a horrible team, but just watching the emotional landscape of the game being played out hundreds of feet below... It was a far more amazing experience than images on a TV screen can convey. Later my labmate took a photo of me as I was looking over downtown San Diego contemplating the world. My locks look a lot lighter than they appear normally, but the sun was setting and cast a wonderful light across everything.
