Thank You for Monday. A working week begins and I suggest to warm up our brain by a kids riddle.
Who swims in the water, but isn’t a fish?
Who whistles and chirps, but isn’t a bird?
Who loves to jump, but isn’t a frog?
Who makes the Ocean dance, but isn’t God?
It is not difficult, is it? Meganne Forbes, the painter, creates unique portraits of our friends – dolphins.
Did you know that India’s Ministry of Environment and Forests has officially recognized dolphins as non-human persons, whose rights to life and liberty must be respected. Dolphinariums are banned in India!
Dr Thomas White, an ethics expert, said: “The similarities between cetaceans (marine mammals) and humans are such that they, as we, have an individual sense of self. The science has shown that individuality, consciousness, self awareness is no longer a unique human property.”
So if dolphins are persons we should use “he” or “she” instead of “it” in our describing.
Dolphins dance in two elements.
They must live in both – water and air.
They must dance by pair
Expressing their feelings,
Catching the moment
To begin a new life!
We live in the same Ocean
Making the Ocean dance.
Kindness, Openness, Warmness,
The music of our hearts
We are all dancing by.
I highly recommend to watch the animation you see below. I love “Girl and Dolphin” from my early childhood. You will touch my heart and newly born emotion makes our Ocean dance!
We watch in awe, every time, never tiring of the spectacle.
Dolphins dance and we learn how to live in the Dancing Ocean.
