Sacred Play


dolphin and Jean Pierre

We want to muscle into life and feel its real power and sweep.

We want to drink from the source.

In rare moments of deep play, we can lay aside our sense of self,

shed time’s continuum, ignore pain, and sit quietly in the absolute present,

watching the world’s ordinary miracles…

When it happens we experience a sense of revelation and gratitude.

Nothing need be thought or said.

There is a way of beholding that is a form of prayer.


These are the words of Diane Ackerman and this is Jean Pierre kissing the Dolphin.
