In this modern world of instant communications, cloud computing and Google answers to any question within a second, we find ourselves almost lost when part of the network fails us. We take for granted the ability to connect, to converse, to problem solve, to be aware of what is happening around the globe until we lose even the smallest piece of connectivity. In so many ways we are spoiled. And so it is onboard RV Mirai in the Chukchi Sea.
It was quite a shock to log onto Tumblr the other day and actually see the last time I posted a blog.
