A pregnant pause is a momentary stillness laden with significance. It is rich, prolific, provocative, wow. It is a threshold for ideas and can translate into one to one thousand emotions. It welcomes imagination and brims with untold possibilities. Sometimes, it is even pinched with humor. Life's most unforgettable moments are highlighted by pregnant pauses. Now, I gladly share with you mine.

Kissed By A Dolphin
"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much....the wheel, New York, wars and so on....whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man....for precisely the same reasons."
- from "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams
We recently brought our little boy to watch "The Wonderful World of Dolphins" show. He was completely fascinated and besotted by the sight of the darling creatures performing their amazing stunts. At the end of the program, our son was stunned to get the surprise kiss of his life.
