Monday's Food for Thought

I was watching a documentary on underwater mysteries, and while it's been done before, there's still so much about the depths of the ocean that humans are oblivious to.

Take a look at the dumbo octopus, that uses ear-like fins to float.

Or the Vampire Squid, so named because the spines on its tentacles look like Dracula's cloak. There's so much to research, and even more to dream up.

WHAT IF... we went exploring? What if there was a way to go down there, to live among the sea creatures? Use your imagination, and don't be afraid to get it wrong. The best adventures/explorations (in my opinion) come from times when much of science and the world was still unknown. Jules Verne and H. G. Wells - yes, they got it wrong, but that doesn't mean their stories aren't amazing. There was so much more to write about and imagine before science got in the way!

Go out, dream big, and come to me when you're done, because I'd love to read it!

Just a little something for your Monday mind to munch on.

  1. An Atlantis thing would be so cool, but you'd somehow need to get around the pressure at the bottom of the sea...maybe there's a machine, but it's failing! That would be sad. But cool!
