The Hottest Blood of All
In March, 2014, my husband and I joined my parents on a whale watching expedition. I wrote about it for All Things Girl, when I got home, and meant to post it to this podcast then. A year and a half later, I’m finally doing so.
I also know that something deep inside me has been profoundly affected by this experience. Whales, when you’re close to them, when you look them in the eye, radiate this ages-old preternatural wisdom that you can’t quite grasp, except by the edges. The calf and I locked gazes, and it felt, for those precious seconds, like I was in the center of the universe and made of starlight and whalesong.
