Story

I spend a lot of time on the ocean in Southeast Alaska, a very beautiful place full of incredible sights and creatures: mountains and glaciers, puffins and sea otters, whales, seals, sharks and eagles.

I'm not lonely... most of the time... but there are times when I just want to say to somebody "Wow, did you see that, isn't that beautiful?"

Truth is though, that even if I had someone to share these things with, the whale would jump out of the water, I'd say "Did you see that?" and by the time my companion looked up to see what I was talking about, it would be gone.

No two people see the same thing the same way either, so in a way we are all alone in our own worlds of perception and experience... and that's why I'm sure you understand.
