Holy Tornado

To see the soul of your comrade listen carefully to his music.

I don't know when this happened but I just saw it in an e-mail today.

"If you read the front page 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.

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, and a line tugging from her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallone 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 bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her.
A very dangerous proposition. One slap of her tail could kill a rescuer.
They worked for hours and eventually freed her.
When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushing them gently around, she thanked them.
Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.
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."

The following was added to this e-mail ,
and I pray it for my readers:
May you, and all those you love,
be so blessed and fortunate...
to be surrounded by people
who will help you get untangled
from the things that are binding you,

And may you always know the joy
of giving and receiving gratitude.
