Oh So Sad…………………

a melancholy thursday…

I found this very sad tale about a Baleen Whale who is all on her own on the sometimes zoo. She has no mate, doesn’t belong to a pod just crosses the oceans all alone.

image and quote – the sometimes zoo

“the problem, the scientists have ascertained, is in her songs.  her voice is unlike any other baleen whale.  it is unique in the fact that her species communicate in songs between 12 – 25hz, and this whale sings at 52hz.  thus no other whales can hear nor reply to this lonely creature’s calls to communicate.  with every song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as the years go by.”

The saddest thing about this story is that there is no happy ending for her.
