I've been in love with Octopus since I saw Jacques Cousteau deliver a speech about them in 1973 and published his book The Soft Intelligence! I've lived on a sailboat, islands and cities on bays. Every ocean I've visited, I've looked for and often found Octopus. But my very first encounter was with a small critter living in an engine block in St. Croix, USVI, while I was living on a sailboat in the harbor when I was 19. Been collecting books, stories and experiences ever since! Now I've started a memoir and want to connect with other folks who love this critters as much as I do. Glad to have found you here!
