is a purposeful life-long journey,
and one I commend,
but I just want to find a porpoise
who can teach me how to click and spin,
and how to play with wild abandon,
and how to hold my breathe
while diving to deep depths.
With a sense of purpose, my newfound porpoise
and I would glide out to sea and never be seen again.
Until I find my porpoise and learn how to grow a dorsal fin,
in our sea of purpose-driven humanity, I will continue to swim.
Light-hearted feels like the perfect place to get started. As I mentioned in my video presentation, “Feel the fear, keep writing!” I was nervous to begin a blogging journey. Sharing my thoughts (and shimmies) with the world. Oh my! I am glad I pushed through that initial fear and kept writing and sharing year after year after year. I am delighted to be here! Revisiting previously written posts and pondering how much has changed since I began this creative exploration – in the world and in myself.
Thank you for being here and for supporting my creative efforts. I have learned more about the world and the interesting people living in it through this blogging experience than I ever could have in my four-walled classroom existence. Be well. 💗Michele
Bonus: Did you know that porpoises are among the smallest aquatic mammals? They are thought to have emerged as a group of aquatic mammals about 15 million years ago, when they were confined to the north of the Pacific Basin. From these beginnings they slowly evolved into the total of six species of porpoise alive today. Similar to the dolphin, porpoises have a wide repertoire of communication calls, including ‘clicks’ used for echo-location. Also similar to the dolphin, their greatest threat to population is fishing nets and pollution. (onekindplanet.org/)
