Reading: 'A Whale for the Killing" by Farley Mowat. In this book about a humpback whale, Mowat describes touching one of these precious animals in the water. Mowat writes "His skin was so warm." I swam in the middle of a pod of humpbacks off the north shore of Bermuda. I touched a humpback mother and her calf. It was a moment of enlightenment, a moment of knowing that we are all connected WHEN I touched the warm skin of these animals.

    " I wish you a wonderful weekend dear Betsy    I would like to share with you this beautiful love story! If I heard of it the first time, she touched my soul so deeply, that I lost my heart completely to these gentle giants. How small become our "problems" at this moment in comparison, what a fate we caused in life of all these graceful creatures?"
