The Daily Breeze

Welcome to the daily writings of Michael Schulder’s Wavemaker.   These brief essays and impressions will only take a minute or two of your time.

I call it The Daily Breeze because my oceanographer friend, Nantucket’s Dr. Sarah Oktay, explained to me that a big wave, the kind I want to create, can begin with a light breeze.   I hope you find these daily breezes entertaining, and even insightful.  

And if you do, please share.
