The last few nights, San Diego coastal observers from La Jolla, north to Encinitas, were treated to a natural light show. A bloom of a certain kind of algae that turns the color of the ocean water to a brownish-red shade, also creates a bluish-white light at night when the force of the surf triggers the critters’ bio-luminescence. I haven’t discovered any videos posted yet of this current event, but for the curious who haven’t had the good fortune to be able to observe this first-hand, here is a clip of the same kind of event that occurred in 2014, filmed along Del Mar and Solana Beach.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
