Once upon a whale’s tale, I swam in currents deeper,

more solitary; fulfilling my destiny, searching

to remember who I was. Still, you swim and I am here.

Dive to depths beyond the depths we know,

Share your knowledge with those who wish to know it,

Cherish the memories you may have yet to lose.

The depths rise deeper, but still you rise to breathe.

Bubbles blown from hope spout unfathomable ideas.

Your existence, drenched in joy, seeks the perfect oblivion.

Lose the past in deep twirls of blue, and dive

towards the depths of eternity; forgetting yourself

in the depths of reflection, of ocean, of wisdom, of spirit, of dreams.

Once upon a whale’s tale, I swam in currents deeper

And dived to depths beyond the deepest depths.

I share your knowledge and cherish your memories.

Bubbles blown spout hope for tomorrow – eternity lives in the oceans of time.

The photos above- as well as the glacier photos -were all taken by little ol' me on my recent trip to Alaska. I hope you like them and stay tuned for more.

The photos are amazing and... I couldn't help but feel the poem applied a lot to what is going on in my life. Whether you did it on purpose or it just happened... Thank you.

Next time you go you can roll me up in a rug and take me as illicit goods.

Amazing photos! How long did you have to hold that camera at the ready to get these? It must be like the 4/60 sniper drills where a target will pop up four times in an hour for only a second each time and the sniper has to be ready to make the shot each time. No blinking! I guess the difference is that the whale didn't get shot. That's good!
