Daily Draw: Wisdom of the Four Winds ~ Whale/Attunement
In end-of-world books there isn't a reliable food source because no one is left to plant or harvest. In science fiction there are more people than traditional methods of sustenance can support. A recent book had electronic ocean curtains around the world to keep whales safe on their migration and to herd them into harvest ponds. Like pigs, there isn't much waste in a whale.
I'm reminded by this card of our own migration birth to death. I know people who have never left the county we were born in and have had only one job, the same job their dad or mom had. I think about them sometimes when I get a wild hair to do or go differently. What triggers in me that doesn't in them? If I produced a life migration map, mental and physical, would there be a pattern? Red blooms where I went sideways, green blooms for up, and brackish brown blooms for down? And will whales or humans ever accept life in a pen?
