Welcome to Thursday Coffee Hour. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. I think one of the most fascinating creatures on Earth is the dolphin. I often use them in my art.
Dolphins form themselves into pods. They are very social animals. They communicate with each other in a variety of clicks, whistles and other vocalizations. Dolphins have been known to help injured swimmers both human and nonhuman.
Writers have frequently used dolphins in their stories. One of the most famous was the late Douglas Adams. The dolphins left Earth before it was destroyed by the Vogons but they did try to warm the Earthlings but we couldn’t understand the message. Finally giving up they left us a message that said, “goodbye and thanks for all the fish.”
I often put my dolphins in other worlds. I figure as an intelligence species they belong among the stars.
