Whale Dream

I turned to speak with her and it appeared she was walking on water.
Then I saw them, huge whales just under the surface of the water.
They knew her, and were coming to say goodbye.

I adore whales, and have had the wonderment of being in the water
with these gentle giants as a kid growing up in Laguna Beach.

What is happening to them is breaking my heart.

If you want to stop the losses, stop eating Chinook Salmon at all;
Orcas are starving partly because Chinook is being overfished.
There are wonderful varieties of salmon and even clean-harvested farmed salmon
(look for those with no dyes and ocean grown).
Boycott Chinook and ask your market to not sell it.

Also, stop using plastic.
We were raised thinking that we have to wrap everything in plastic.
Get glass containers (jam jars in various sizes work great and are inexpensive)
and stop topping things in plastic.
I am amazed how often we simply don’t need it.
WRITE each time you get a package that has been unnecessarily wrapped in plastic,
(Amazon I am talking to you and also the makers of cat littler for God’s sake)
and write the companies that are switching from paper to plastic to stop
(Salt containers, many liquid products.)

    • One of the thrills of my lifetime was being in the water when a mother and her baby came close to rub her back and the rocks. My mom was hysterical on the shore, but I was not afraid… gentle giants.

    Plastic madness…a fast sit down restaurant. Please skip the lips and straws, most escape to the trash in less than a blink of an eye as one exits your eatery! Drink from the glass and go ahead dribble on yourself 😜
