Transcend the impossible

Mythical creatures like unicorns and mermaids are fun stuff for children to wrap there minds around. Unfortunately if there ever was any truth to their existence it hasn't been substantiated since the days of Merlin. On the flip side, there is at least one living creature that can evoke the same sense of mystery as aquatic, wish-granting, human females with fish tails or magical white horses with a twisty pearl horn.

The sight of this small ocean resident reinforces that the natural world contains some unexplainable truths. The creature I'm referring to is the flying fish. Even it's name suggests contradiction. Today's post is a tribute to this special flier that has transcended the impossible. Let it serve as a source of hope for all of us when facing difficult challenges. Believe in the possibilities.
