Narwhals of Baffin Bay

NARWHALS hardly qualify as Lasqueti wildlife. But they're enchanting. I got to write about them for a recent issue of National Wildlife (see opening spread and link below). The photographer, Paul Nicklen, grew up in the Canadian Arctic, and I think you'll find his pictures stunning.

October Fullness (Pablo Neruda)

Little by little, and also in great leaps,

Life happened to me,

and how significant this business is.

These veins carried my blood, which I scarcely ever saw.

I breathed the air of so many places

without keeping a sample of any.

In the end, everyone is aware of this:

nobody keeps any of what he has,

and life is a borrowing of bones.
