This bird is well known to the police and INTERPOL. He was not always a bad gull. He has changed his MO. He is suspected in a number of robberies at ATM’s. Not only did it provide him with cash, stolen ID’s were used in identity thefts. I think he just got in with the wrong crowd, jail birds.

What I’ve been up to for the past 3 months by Peter A. Mello

OK, Sea-Fever has been dark for some time and that’s because in mid-March I started a new job as Managing Director of WaterFire Providence.  It’s destiny that a guy with a blog called Sea-Fever goes to work at a place called WaterFire.

If you’ve never experienced WaterFire you’ll probably just get confused if I try to tell you what it is. But I’ll try any way because you should know.

WaterFire Providence is a nonprofit organization whose mission is  to inspire Providence and its visitors by revitalizing the urban experience, fostering community engagement and creatively transforming the city by presenting WaterFire for all to enjoy. What’s WaterFire? This video does a better job than any words I could muster.

For a deeper dive on WaterFire, here’s an old video of founder Barnaby Evans explaining the artwork.

I’ve been very fortunate to have some incredible jobs over the years and the chance to work with some amazing people; however, WaterFire is really a world apart. I’ll be writing about it here from time to time.

If you haven’t experienced WaterFire, you must come!
