When we went snorkeling with the manatees the water was really murky so they would just sneak up on you. I was just floating along and one would just bump into me. They are like 3,600 pound ninjas.

"Obviously, I’ve been born with red hair, so I’ve kind of heard it all my life, especially being brought up in Scotland by a lot of gingers. ‘Redheads have this big temper’ and ‘You don’t want to step on the wrong side of a redhead because you know they’ll flip their lid.’ But I’m not really good at being in an argument. I’m pretty terrible. Maybe if you back me into a corner."
Music is one of the most influential things in my life. So many of my best memories are tied to music. 2 years ago I took a crazy adventure to New Orleans by myself to attend JazzFest and I fell in love. With the city, with the culture, with the music…and WWOZ played a huge role in that. As soon as I returned to Seattle I started listening to OZ online almost religeously and it made me miss Nola so much, that I knew I had to move there. And the rest is history, and I have to give back to the station that made me realize where I was meant to be.

Rudy’s Library in Monowi, Nebraska – one of the many soul-warming photographs in Robert Dawson’s visual love letter to public libraries:
The entire population of this town consists of one woman, Elsie Eller. It is the only incorporated municipality in the United States with such a demographic. She acts as mayor and runs the only business in town, a local roadhouse. Over the years she watched all the other town residents move or pass away. When her husband, Rudy Eller, died in 2004, she became the town’s last resident. Because Rudy had collected so many books, she decided to open Rudy’s lLIbrary in a small shed next to her home. This memorial to Rudy is free and open to all. Patrons can check out books by signing a notebook. A wooden sign in the corner simply states “Rudy’s Dream.”
