    Wow - too cool. In what capacity are you working with the whales?

    I saw many humpbacks in the north pacific off of Vancouver Island. It is incredible to be in the company of such a large and gentle mammal.

    It was amazing to see them move so close by and I knew that they were aware of where we were and their control and grace. I can't imagine what it would be like to see a blue in person.

    See - more joy

    My children spark joy. Playing music on the guitar and piano and singing sparks joy. Playing music around the campfire with other people is the best. This weekend I got to play guitar and sing while another person played the harmonica. Then yesterday, my son accompanied me on the guiro while also playing the maraca strapped to his foot
    There's no time like the present.

    Thoughts of freedom, well being, love, truth and harmony bring me joy.

    I dream of a time when humans become so smart, so clever and so intuitive, that manipulation of humans is no longer possible.

    I feel joy when I affirm "I am sovereign. I choose love. Love is what I am." This affirmation is often followed by something that feels like electricity flowing up through my body. And that electricity is especially intense if I suspect something unknown is nearby.

    It feels good to give thanks for knowing that I (and everyone else) is an extension of Source energy on Prime Creator's forever journey of creation and Self discovery. We all are apertures through which the universe is looking at and exploring itself.

    The Joy that lives long...

    Justicia sin odio.
    Justice without hatred.
    Then the happiness I feel in knowing that each one there knows another way, far beyond the play of the crime.
    Angels gather and remember who they are there to serve.
    This is my lasting joy.

    Le cœur de l'être énergique, émanant toujours L'Amour.
    The heart of the energetic being, always emanating Love.
    I meet them, these very special souls.... when I stop quickly enough, to stop thinking....

    Living in the Light of the Love that sacrifices.
    Vivre a la Lumière de l'Amour qui sacrifie.
    I sense their future, when they just sense the relief of paying some life giving value to others.



    Ma te ite e i teie nei oraraa, e te oaoa no te tiaraa i nia no outou iho.(Tahitian)
    Knowing now that life is the joy of standing up for yourself.

    Lighting the fire of self-empowerment in another being.
    No te turama i te auahi no te fariiraa i te mana iana iho i roto i te tahi atu.

    Seeing those I've known who will never be mistreated again, often with many years passed, I feel joy in their greetings.

    I woke up this morning with a question in my head "What makes me feel good?."

    My answer was "That you (anyone) feel good, wherever you are and whoever you are with." That includes my family, ex wives, past girl friends and animals.

    Singing uplifting music, karaoke-style with my friends in the car. (or miming because I can't hit the notes)

    Being breathless because the next note from the singer is even more incredible than the next.

    I've discovered that one of my friends is an amazing singer.

    She sent me this little note this morning and my heart just exploded with love.

    This song makes the soul soar.

    I'm not religious but this singers voice was sublime. I hung onto every. single. note.
