All I want to do now is sit on the beach and pet Whales, I want to be able to hear them breath, tho I be deaf, I can still imaging those Great Lungs exhausting the used Air for new Air…….They Sail the Seven Seas, in Majesty, sometimes flying through the Air in Pure Joy! At the Blessing of Life, Lived! ~~~~~Thank the God’s of Life that those Harpoons are almost all gone, except for a few ignorant humans, who still think of the great whales as Food, to be killed and eaten…..With those modern tools it is easy to stick an exploding Harpoon into that magnificent Body, the almost end – point of Creations longing for life…… ~~~~~I wonder how many fishermen with their massive nets hauling in ton after Ton of fish think to thank those fish for their Sacrifice of their Lives that we may fill our bellies and live for another day? ~~~~~I think, everyday should be Thanks-Giving Day! Like giving thanks for the free air we breath in and exhale with almost no thought of where it originates from, like it is owed to us, instead of the true Gift it is…… ~~~~~Today is December 1st. The Sun has gone South for Winter to set in, those short, dark days. We have Electric lights now, and we forget just how dark it used to be, before them, with only a tiny candle to light that long night…~~~~~ ~~~~~So I started this article out on Whales, so let us end it with another Whale tale, Once upon a time I was working on a Barge motoring it’s way through Prince William Sound, Alaska, after the Exxon-Valdez Oil spill, and here along side us was this Hump-back whale almost as big as the Barge, I was listening to the Doors “The War is Over” back when I could still hear, and here was this magnificent Giant Creature swimming alongside us, for Hours, I could look into it’s eyes! What Magic prevails in this world, if we but have eyes to see!

I still retain the ability to think for myself, therefore I write blogs looking for some-one to hold a discourse with... For example our local library here in Homer, Alaska just was gifted an Oxford English Dictionary set of 20 volumes. What a Great Gift... This is the essence of life: " To gift a Great Gift." The .org: Building the House of Mankind. The most important thing right now, that we have to do is make sure our children have a good livable, planet, which means we have to start cleaning up the mess we have made of this home of ours....
