The World: For When Life Feels Joyful!

Well here’s a news flash that got my heart dancing. Forget about politics and shit…

A gigantic herd of dolphins has been spotted off the San Diego coastline. The phenomenon called a ‘super pod’ is about seven miles long and five miles wide. Which is a little bit mind blowing for someone like moi. I get excited when I see one dolphin in the wild let alone 100,000. It’s like Dolphin Convention 2013 out there. Apparently the super pod is is a rare but noted event which takes place at sporadic intervals for no apparent reason. Dolphin experts have just been shaking their heads with embarrassment when asked to please explain this behaviour.

You can view footage of the super pod taken from a tourist boat on my Facebook page or at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZbA421hIhs. The boat captain said he’s never seen anything like it. To quote: ‘They were coming from all directions, you could see them from as far as the eye could see. I’ve seen a lot of stuff out here. But this is the biggest I’ve ever seen, ever.’ When an old sea dog is gob-smacked it stands to reason that the rest of us should stand up and pay attention. Something truly miraculous has occurred. And when you watch the footage I’m sure you’ll agree. There’s something incredibly joyful about watching dolphins at play. Puts me in mind of this Tarot card…

On so many levels the video embodies this card:
