Mantra Rays



Did my exercise on the beach this afternoon, and finished up with a meditation by-the-sea. Just as I'm coming out of it, I open my eyes, and right in front of me in the water, a manta ray flies up over the surface of the ocean. H-U-G-E and so alien-looking, like something out of Men In Black.

In awe, I soak in the auspicious visitation. For me at least, they will always be called mantra rays now.

Cathy, thanks for flaunting. Spring has started off nicely here in Bellingham, with a few sunny, summerish days, but we're a long way off from true summer, and we never see manta rays.

(Disclaimer: We have plenty of marine life here, and the world's largest octupii live in Puget Sound. We just don't have the same beach experience. The water is NEVER comfortable to swim in without a wetsuit.)

Flaunting? Surely you jest. I never see mantra rays either, that's why I had to share it!
