The manta ray is a delicate animal that lives in the waters of the tropics. Often when I am swimming in the gulf, a manta ray has passed by me within inches. Their every movement is done with such grace and fluidity. Too many of us live herky-jerky lives that lack the finesse or adroitness that we should employ. We should seek to take every step in grace and our deeds should be smooth, silky, and seemingly effortless like the movements of the manta ray.
