I read yesterday that humans kill 100 million sharks per year. (Stop Shark Finning)
bL spent a week at Varanasi in 1998. Arrived after dark, found a room not far from the Ganges. Next morning first thing took a ride in a low row boat. Solicited to do so, placed a lighted candle on that holy water and watched it drift in the great river spirit of India as pink dolphins gently rose and rolled, in and out and all around. Did not sight these beings again but have never forgotten that welcome.
After last night's dream of watching and wondering from a low grassy bank as a .../dolphin/porpose/shark/whale/... its dorsal fin cutting the air as it circled so near in the crystal clear water... this poster from Spike Press.
