// There comes a day when we suddenly realize that the control we seek will forever remain just outside our grasp. For some it’s a terrifying discovery, while for others, its strangely liberating. //
⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some of us despise it, and still, change comes knocking on our door. It's inevitable. It's raw. It knocks you down to pick you back up and do it all over again. It's uncertain and it challenges us. Pushing us to our line of comfort, seeing how far we will bend before we break.
⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
The constant between all these moments is c h o i c e. Choice to surrender to all uncontrollable and uncertain events. Choice to thrive in these moments choosing to see them as lessons and tests. You choose to love. To smile. To carry on. To believe, in yourself, in others, in this world. These are all your choice.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No matter how strong the winds are, you are rooted deeply in this power. Any storm, any conditions, your roots still remain strong and nurtured - because you choose so.
⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are simply not able to control everything you wish to, though, you are able to navigate your mind to open it’s perspective.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
// It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to has power over you. If you allow it. //
⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what do you choose?

Magnificent nature

"Bigg's Killer Whales"

This beautiful video was filmed on location off the Coast of Vancouver Island in the Salish Sea courtesy Artist, Marine Naturalist and Cetacean Protector, Tasli Shaw @taslishaw - Bigg's killer whale galore.

🔵Between 1964 and 1976, 50 killer whales from the Pacific Northwest were captured for display in aquaria, and public interest in the animals grew. In the 1970s, research pioneered by Michael Bigg led to the discovery of the species' complex social structure, its use of vocal communication, and its extraordinarily stable mother–offspring bonds. Through photo-identificationtechniques, individuals were named and tracked over decades.

Bigg's techniques also revealed the Pacific Northwest population was in the low hundreds rather than the thousands that had been previously assumed. The southern resident community alone had lost 48 of its members to captivity; by 1976, only 80 remained. In the Pacific Northwest, the species that had unthinkingly been targeted became a cultural icon within a few decades.

The public's growing appreciation also led to growing opposition to whale–keeping in aquarium. Only one whale has been taken in North American waters since 1976. In recent years, the extent of the public's interest in killer whales has manifested itself in several high-profile efforts surrounding individuals. Following the success of the 1993 film Free Willy, the movie's captive star Keiko was returned to the coast of his native Iceland in 1998. The director of the International Marine Mammal Project for the Earth Island Institute, David Phillips, led the efforts to return Keiko to the Iceland waters. In 2002 the orphan Springer was discovered in Puget Sound, Washington. She became the first whale to be successfully reintegrated into a wild pod after human intervention, crystallizing decades of research into the vocal behavior and social structure of the region's killer whales.

It’s Monday of a holiday week; remember you don’t need permission to be big and great and beautiful. 🌲

This was by far one of the scariest moments of my life, swimming at Ocean Beach in 2016. The buoy was pushing 17 feet and this was one of the smaller sets that came through. Moments after this wave I took an entire set on the head and arrived back on the beach 10 city blocks from where I paddled out. #oceanbeach #humbled @spl_waterhousing

Our work, our canvas. It's heavy, dusty and dirty. Upon it we have built a life for ourselves, strong backs, and many pieces for our customers to enjoy.
Looking forward to continuing to share all of our best with you all.
