A Whale of a Tale

We are not alone on the Earth, we just don’t know how to communicate with the others. Yet.

    OK, it was a bit mushy woushy but I do have to admit my eyes misted up a bit.

    Years ago I spent around a month down on Rarotonga and in the waters, no whale tales but I could pretty much place where she was.

    Thanks GVL. That’s a wonderful vid. Deeply needed and greatly appreciated. I have a young grand daughter who wants to become a Marine Biologist and it’s right down her alley so I forwarded it to her.

    Please, more of this sort of thing. One story like this is the antidote for whole day of current events.

    If you haven’t yet read it, Gerard, I think you’d heartily enjoy Ursula Le Guin’s story “The Author of the Acacia Seeds.” It’s simultaneously imaginative, graceful, and oddly touching.

    “Long are the tunnels. Longer is the untunneled. No tunnel reaches the end of the untunneled. The untunneled goes on farther than we can go in ten days [i.e., forever]. Praise!”
