This is quite an amazing recording by California Academy of Sciences about the oceans. Grabs at my heart.

…being in the ocean feels like being hugged… free… letting the waves roll off my body…

Listen here. Be patient. It starts in silence.

What would the world be without the oceans?

    This is fantastic, and so beautiful. There are a couple of voices that remind me of my nephew. Being landlocked in the mountains of Colorado it can be easy to forget the significance of the deep instead of the high.

  4. Glad you liked it, Kate. Talk about land-locked–I'm in IL! Cheers,
