The Big Picture

As much as we all like our professional pursuits, there really is life beyond data warehousing.  The banner picture on this blog is a glimpse of that big other world where we go to keep it all in perspective.

But up close this tidal pool, which was a fascination of Rachel Carson (Silent Spring author), is teaming with marine life on an earthtone stage with splashes of pastel.  The Rachel Carson Tidal Pool is just north of the fishing village of New Harbor, Maine.

  1. Hi Mark!

    I don’t know if you remember me from way back when at Marriott. I had meetings with you when building the Marriott Rewards Warehouse, and was always impressed with your attention to detail and expertise. I stumbled across your blog and am enjoying reading it. I hope you are doing well and hope you have more posts coming up soon. 🙂

    All the best to you,
    Gloria Lee
