I promise not to pepper this blog with personal musings, but we did recently get back from our first cruise, to Alaska, and I’m sharing a video of the first whales we ever saw. The tour guide was super excited and really loud! So I replaced the audio with recent Loretto Chapel recording of me improvising on the Farewell to Tarwathie whale song that Judy Collins did so well. This was just one of many humpbacks we saw “lunge-feeding” that day.
