Dolphin with a purpose

It’s been over a month since FoundThisArt.com started. Pieces of art have been across the globe already, and have appeared in magical places. Most recently, a dolphin had an adventure. Here’s the art:

It ended up with some relatives, on a bench at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. That’s fitting.

Apparently a few people looked at it quizzically, were intrigued, but weren’t sure they could take it. They could! They could! Finally, a women did stop, look, smile and place the piece into her purse. It made her happy, which is the purpose.

The purpose of a porpoise? First, let’s not confuse porpoises with dolphins. Sure, they are related but they are distant cousins.

I’ve seen dophins several times in my life. They are magical – swift and sleek, smart and savvy. Like so many part of the natural world, they offer inspiration, and joy. They don’t ask for much in return. Just clean water, food and space to swim and play. The least we could do is keep that in mind when we trounce about this planet with a bit too much reckless abandon.

Remember our close relatives in the seas. Remember the porpoises too.
