Book Quotes: The Death Ship
“The deplorable thing, the most deplorable thing, is that the people who were tortured yesterday, torture today.”

Forever Dolphin Love
Connan Mockasin – Forever Dolphin Love (Erol Alkan rework) 2011
The dolphins swam below and along with the boat, the pod churning the waters with their graceful movements. I attempted to photograph them but I was so mesmerized by the way they moved, by the little newly born dolphin swimming alongside it’s parents and by the grace of the water creatures, that I abandoned my attempts for a perfect photo and became transfixed by the experience. The next day I heard this song, Forever Dolphin Love. It was a week of coincidences.
