Welcome to the new website of Debra Hosseini. I use the imagery of the whale because symbolically the whale is the repository of all stories on the planet. The whale symbolizes emotional depth, creativity, and well being. The whale is the world’s largest mammal and teaches lessons in vibration and sound, hearing what is really being said, hearing the faint soft voices, the low frequency messages and remote bonds that are real and strong, though far away. The stories I write are about people who may not be heard. I feel the whale is a beautiful symbol for their voices. I chose a rainbow in the whale to depict not only the spectrum but the hope and promise that a rainbow embodies.
