Archaeopteryx, William Stout

It is a pity some things will never be appreciated by human eyes, things too hidden, too far, or too lost—anemone-like crystals that reach from an undiscovered cave wall; or the swirling blue clouds of a gas giant circling a star so distant it’s part of no constellation; or the contrast of an Archaeopteryx’s plumage, standing against the weathered rocks of a Jurassic archipelago.

Closing time 🙂

Locking up in the partially lit exhibit hall is always magical to me, and fills me with gratitude. I love these beasts, and it makes me so happy to work with them every day.

It was a rough long weekend with gender dysphoria and depression, and a rough morning too. But I made it to work, however late. My colleagues were loving and supportive, and I was able to do some good things today. Not to mention a wonderful conversation with my Mom on the phone. God really does love us, and sends angels when we’re having a rough time. Sometimes they have wings, sometimes they have sneakers, and for me sometimes they have sharp teeth and bony claws 🙂
