–Whales Weep Not! (D. H. Lawrence)
Time for a break from the recent craziness. Here’s a reminder of some of the wonder here in San Diego. Videographer Domenic Biagini used a drone a few days ago on June 4th to capture this sequence of a blue whale and her calf, along with some playful bottlenose dolphins, cavorting in the waters off the coast. On the YouTube we page he notes that “the whales approached us, and we either had our boat out of gear, or engine completely off when approached by the whales.” (h/t to AGD)
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.
