Through and through; through every plank and each rib, it thrilled for an instant, the whale obliquely lying on his back, in the manner of a biting shark, slowly and feelingly taking its bows full within his mouth, so that the long, narrow, scrolled lower jaw curled high up into the open air, and one of the teeth caught in a row-lock. The bluish pearl-white of the inside of the jaw was within six inches of Ahab head, and reached higher than that. In this attitude the White Whale now shook the slight cedar as a mildly cruel cat her mouse. With unastonished eyes Fedallah gazed, and crossed his arms.

Hi! My name is Laura. Mom of 3 boys. I have always had a passion for Physical Therapy, Zumba and early childhood education. Working in the therapy field has allowed me to learn and grow a passion for health promotion and education for the community. With my physical therapy background and experience in pediatrics, I know that the benefits of early childhood education are an essential component to raising healthy and well-adjusted children — a mentality and skillset I was fortunate to be able to apply with my own kids. Attending Mommy and Me classes with both of my kids was one of the best bonding experiences I was able to experience with them. I fell in love with the parent and child concept. I want to use this page to share my love for health promotion, parenting, health and fitness and music and movement.

And now, while both elastic gunwales were springing in and out, as the whale dallied with the doomed craft in this devilish way and from his body being submerged beneath the boat, he could not be darted at from the bows, for the bows were almost inside of him, as it were; and while the other boats involuntarily paused, as before a quick crisis impossible to withstand, then it was that monomaniac Ahab, furious with this tantalizing vicinity of his foe, which placed him all alive and helpless in the very jaws he hated frenzied with all this, he seized the long bone with his naked hands, and wildly strove to wrench it from its gripe. As now he thus vainly strove, the jaw slipped from him; the frail gunwales bent in, collapsed, and snapped, as both jaws, like an enormous shears, sliding further aft, bit the craft completely in twain, and locked themselves fast again in the sea, midway between the two floating wrecks. These floated aside, the broken ends drooping, the crew at the stern-wreck clinging to the gunwales, and striving to hold fast to the oars to lash them across.
