Sperm Whales aka Cachalots (Physeter macrocephalus)

Totally submerged though far away from the bottom as never before,

I was scared but never felt threatened,

I was stunned while extremely conscious of my surroundings,

I was amazed yet not surprised by their gentleness.

Never was I immersed so deep in the natural world and met with so much intelligence.

World’s biggest toothed predators were kind to me and so was I towards them.

Kindness is what they deserve and kindness is what this world needs.
