Saturday Shorts: Song of the Sea — 4 Comments

  1. Beautiful, heart-touching story. I’d be terrified to dive blind. Not being able to see my gauges, or if I was sinking, or which way I was going, or which way was up.

    I was wondering up until the point where the whales sing what would be the benefit in diving if she can’t see. I can understand wanting to swim even without her sight, but diving seems like a very visually stimulating activity.

    I love the ray of hope at the end, but also knowing that even if she hadn’t regained her sight, that she had found a way to really live without it.

    • Thanks! I imagine it’s difficult to do it while blind. However, I wanted to emphasize the impact of the whale’s song, and the best way to do that was to remove any unnecessary senses.
