26 April 2011


Very tired at the end of a long day I sit with my cup of tea and watch a documentary about a gentle tortoise's travel across the Pacific. Images of whale and dolphin and big schools of fish expanding and rolling into tight balls, impressive sharks and dramatic manta ray and yellow fin tuna. And fragile coral with teeming specks of little fish like pieces of coloured glass.
And then the miracle of mass spawning. Every year, in one night usually a couple of days after a full moon corals release their eggs simultaneously. And within a short period of time the dark ocean is filled with an incredible amount of shiny pearls, all life.
If you are looking for hope, you find it here.
