Justin Bloom, executive director, Suncoast Waterkeeper

“I’m watching Sarasota Bay, live. My small TV is relegated to a corner of my office, covered with a tapestry. My windows are open, and gentle breezes carry the sound of waves lapping, fish flopping, leaves rustling, birds calling…tune in to a waterfront near you.”

Listening to

Joseph Caulkins, artistic director, Key Chorale

“I am finalizing repertoire for Key Chorale’s 32nd season and one concert is all French Baroque, so I am listening to Baroque music, especially Handel and Charpentier. Much of it is new to me, even though it’s 300 years old.”

The Methuselarity Transformation by Sarasota’s Rick Moskovitz. It takes place in the near future, when immortality is within reach and the wealthy old can pay the young to die for them. His fictional future—maybe our future—is both thrilling and chilling.”
