Seas, Oceans and Everything There-of-in — Music Theme–With extras, because I can’t help myself.

Okay, I’m not sure I’ve quite stuck to Seas and Oceans and Everything There-of–but I’ve certainly had fun trying!  I’m sure anyone reading, and listening can add at least one selection that they WOULD have included above all others for such a serving. So, please don’t hold back. Don’t be shy. Post them on your blogs. Share them in the comments. Drop some links so the rest of us can visit and see what you think of when contemplating the seas and oceans of the ever incredible planet Earth. It’s the only home you’ve got. Love it or lose it.  Oops. Maybe that’s why the dolphin is ‘yelling.’ It was very tempting to go the pollution route with this post–but–I didn’t. We can sing that song all the time–unfortunately. I’m fairly certain the reason for each selection is self-evident. Heads up, the video from The Impossible is not for the squeamish — imagine a human body encountering all the debris from a huge wave of water moving inland–no body armor available. It’s quite a dramatic piece of film-craft in my opinion.

Links to Bearspawprint and Willowdot21–and whoever else decides to play along– will be forthcoming as they appear.

Whales Give Dolphins a Lift

American Museum of Natural History

Many species interact in the wild, most often as predator and prey. But recent encounters between humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins reveal a playful side to interspecies interaction. In two different locations in Hawaii, scientists watched as dolphins “rode” the heads of whales: the whales lifted the dolphins up and out of the water, and then the dolphins slid back down. The two species seemed to cooperate in the activity, and neither displayed signs of aggression or distress. Whales and dolphins in Hawaiian waters often interact, but playful social activity such as this is extremely rare between species. The latest Bio Bulletin from the Museum’s Science Bulletins program presents the first recorded examples of this type of behavior. Visitors to AMNH may view the video in the Hall of Biodiversity until February 9, 2012.

Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History. Find out more about Science Bulletins at

If you’ve seen this then you know why it BELONGS here. Some things just get lost in my wp cyber-space closest so easily. If you haven’t seen it–well, I hope you love it as much as I do.  🙂  From a previous post, ‘Water Rites’.

I had a terrible time posting mine I had a real fight with it in the end I won though was scheduled to publish at 00.01 am but it didn’t , hey ho at last it is there!! 😉

      Hello willowdot21–you’re not alone in the posting woes department. I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this theme–in spite of the issues with things not related to the topic–LOL. I like that we all have such different takes on all of it.
      Oh that scene fromt The Impossible can be a toughie–it was spellbinding when I first saw it–and the SOUNDS were incredible. It does make water scary! But your wonderful La Mer balances it out beautifully. 🙂

        I am so afraid of drowning I was over 30 yrs by the time I learned to swim, so imagine how scared that scene made me!

      • October 6, 2013 at 6:24 pm

        Scared, but you were brave and watched it, willow! Wow, don’t you have some hard core nerves.
        Sounds like you have your fear well in hand, especially since you learned to swim in spite of it.

    Whale Rider one of my most favorite movies. Once tried to post the movie, but could not find the whole thing. This scene is wrenching. And the glass in the Impossible counteracted by Roxi and Rites. All of ’em good …..
