I found this framed photograph of a humpback whale at a second hand store here at the Beach. I took this picture that doesn't really do it justice but you can get the idea. The photographer entitled it Backflip. I can't imagine the energy needed to flip this amazing tonnage. And yet it happens. Suddenly, the inspiration surges, lifting it high enough to flip out of the water. What was hidden is now revealed by seeing in a new direction. The view, an expansive awareness of life. A new dimension.

Whales, as you see, will occasionally breach, coming completely out of the water. The message of the whale asks, How are you using your creative ability? "Are you keeping everything inside? Afraid to let it out? If so it's time to breach. Show the magnificence and power of your own creativity. Do not hold back." (Animal-Speak)

The humpback whale is noted for its wonderful song. May you sing a new song this day with the help of your Angels.
