Orca silently surface to breath, matching the early-morning attitude of the seemingly still inside passage. Both of these bodies present as calm but are extremely powerful, both water and whale. Silver and gold happily marry on the sea’s surface for the precious period that is dawn. Soon they will break, the wind will whip the still ocean surface, the whales will rejoin their family group. Until then I let a sharp breeze rush over the bow and whip my hair, sip coffee and wonder how this is possibly my office.
