I thought this story, from the news recently, was worth passing along, even
though it's a few days late.

An after Thanksgiving "tale".


THE WHALE

The San Francisco Chronicle ran a front page story about a female humpback
whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle
to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around
her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farralone Islands (outside the
Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help.

Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so
badly off that the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her...

If you read the front page story of the SF Chronicle, you would have read
about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of
crab traps and lines.

One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer. They worked for hours with curved
knives and eventually freed her. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth
says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the
same.

When the whale realized she was free, her rescuers said that she began
swimming around in joyful circles, She swam to each diver, nuzzled him and
then swam to the next one.
Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

May you and all those you love be so fortunate as to be surrounded by
people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you,
to know the joy of  a grateful heart, and to experience the sweetness of
being able to express that gratitude and having it lovingly received.
