Beyond the Beach





Today, we visited the famous Florida Gulfarium, one of the oldest aquariums in the United States. In many ways, a primitive facility and yet in other ways, clearly the precursor to Sea World. Now-- obviously, these photos aren't about dolphins and sea lions. They lead me to another conversation altogether.

It's on the mixed up notion of love-- agape and eros. It's a longer conversation than can be opened here. But I witnessed these women within a few feet of each other-- in front of me-- watching a dolphin show. They both, through their attire are saying something about the nature of love. And I think they both make misstatements in their own way. Within about 15 feet of them was this photo which says it all.
