It is apparent that science is one of the first things left out in the cold when budgets are tight. Marine science is dying, and there is so much more for us to learn.
Recently, io9.com featured an article by Robert T. Gonzalez that brings to our attention the article by Dr. M and Deep Sea News entitled, We Need an Ocean NASA Now.
Is this the answer to the problem of Marine and Deep Sea science under-funding? Is there another way?
The Mermaid Song
Merfolk, here is another song to add to your collection: The Mermaid Song by Dylan Guthro is available for 99 cents on Amazon, and you can listen to a clip before purchasing. The song is also available on Dylan's CD, All That's True.
Be sure to share titles and artists of your favorite lesser-known mermaid songs!
In my October 4th blog post, I told you about the Mermaid Newsletter from Mermaid Dana of Hawaii. I received my first edition recently, and I must say that it is very well done. If you haven't signed up as yet, you can do so at Dana's web site. The newsletter is another great resource for merfolk and fans.
I leave you today with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
Best wishes and starfishes,
