At one point in last night's dream, I was standing in shallow water — warm water, thankfully — holding and massaging a very small whale. A baby gray whale. Far smaller than baby gray whales are at birth: they're born at 12 to 14 feet in length, on their way to reaching 44 to 50 feet when fully grown. But this impossible whale stayed in the water next to me, letting me massage and, apparently, help it. The baby trusted me; presumably its mother trusted me.
I felt relieved.
