I left the office in East Brunswick today and was enjoying the puffy clouds. I saw a flock of buzzards circling, which isn’t unusual. One of the largest landfills on the east coast is just a couple of miles away and there are plenty of buzzards and gulls hanging out there looking for dinner. The office is right beside the NJ Turnpike, so I’m standing in a parking lot listening to 12 lanes of traffic, watching birds coated in landfill stuff and then I see the airplanes lining up to land at Newark Airport. This wasn’t exactly the scene I enjoyed this summer as bald and golden eagles soared past me in Alaska, but it was pretty cool.
