Living In A Bubble

A man chooses to walk out in a dangerous area of the North shore of Oahu.

I live in a bubble at times.  We all do.  It’s human nature.  Reflecting about my time in Hawaii makes me feel free in my spirit and safe. I love tropical climates. I am sure the fact I lived here for several years attributes to these feelings. In the above photo, I enjoyed viewing this man who seemed to feel free getting close to the waves. Water is peaceful even when we know it’s dangerous…


Stumbling along in this life is not what we were intended to do.  We have purpose.  When given the opportunity ,  I can feel music in my body and dance the night away. 

I have done that . Those nights of dancing  can be so much fun. I am in control and enjoy myself in the rhythm. Music can control the mind. I wonder how much fun this surfer was experiencing on his longboard as he allowed the waves to control him as he surfed the direction the ocean was taking him. 


Our mental state can take over our physical state.  For example, if we hurt ( brain talking to us) we may take a pill to help this brain state.  My chronic pain was so much better in the warm climate . 

Enjoying Hawaii is always a spiritual uplifting experience for me. Hawaii is a benchmark for me getting in touch with my spiritual self.


It’s amazing to me when folks argue that their conscious can not accept faith or theology. The idea of science enters the picture and is integral to mankind , but it can not explain my conscious state nor yours. It just can not know the subjective.


We human persons are more than the sum of our parts.  We have spirits that have the ability to think , feel, and can make conscious decisions. Respecting each other’s  life decisions may mean we need to climb out of our bubble once in awhile.  I know I do. Do you?  Living in pain chronically makes me think on spiritual ideals as this post conveys.  So much crisis and turmoil fill up our world these days. Sometimes removing our bubble can bring clarity.

Baby Humpback Whale Flips Out!

I honestly could not stop thinking about Jonah and the Whale while boating out to sea, but to my surprise I never thought I would see a baby Humpback that could grow up to swallow Jonah! Today’s photos are from that encounter.   I soon forgot about Jonah and wondered if Alesia would survive this amazing spectacle as the boat rocked from side to side.

On approach, it looked like milk on the baby, but it was his other fin.

On approach, it looked like milk on the baby.  What do you think?

As our capable Captain approached slowly, he explained to his excited guests that underneath the baby was his mother.  Mama whale was there to teach, protect, feed, and enjoy her offspring.  She could be approached by an aggressive male whale who was interested in mating, however, mama whale made it clear to the male to knock it off!!!  Baby came first!

Look at those baby parts on the whale we encountered.

We saw many breaches of whales right before spotting this precious one, but I felt compelled to share his story.  The captain slowly approached while explaining how baby whales are born in the winter time on Maui’s coast.  The tour guide also made sure to add that no one has ever witnessed a birth of a baby whale!  I was quite surprised with the fact that a live birth was still a mystery to the scientific community.

Continual rotating in the water to look at his mama under him.

Continual rotating in the water was normal so he could  look at his mama under him.

Our baby humpback whale story was one of playfulness.   As I explained earlier,  we were told without a shadow of a doubt his mama was right underneath him the entire time teaching him to maneuver, protecting him from predators, and feeding him!  Now its time for you to look at the photos.  Here’s a secret.  He was showing off to his boat guests and his mama by flipping over and over again in the water.  He was on his back a whole lot because he wanted to be looking at his mama most of the time!!!  That’s a baby for you!
