Did You Know {104} ~ There’s A Company That Turns Dead Bodies Into An Ocean Reef

For those who romanticize a burial at sea, the company Eternal Reefs offers an innovative solution. It mixes the cremated remains of a person with concrete to create a “pearl” onto which loved ones can etch personal messages, handprints or (environmentally friendly) mementos. The pearl is then encased in a “reef ball” that is dropped into the sea, where it provides a new habitat for fish and other sea life, helping encourage a vibrant ecosystem. The circle of life at work!

Did You Know {45} ~ The River Of Five Colours, Colombia

The Liquid Rainbow is caused by a unique phenomena: a red plant – Macarenia clavigera – growing in the riverbed. Other colors come from black rocks, green algae, blue water and yellow sand, producing an iridescent effect. The river also features waterfalls, pools and caverns, making it even more dramatic.

Poetry {12} ~ UNDERWORLD TREASURES

Her crown and glory writhing and hissing, rising then tasting the air

Man averted his eyes and medusa grinned in her underwater lair

She knew mere morals could not appreciate her rare beauty stare

Be an admirer, explore the underwater hidden beauty treasures

Leaving behind predetermined societal measures

Bioluminescence lit up the waters above

Jellyfish swimming in and out of man-made discarded masks and a hospital glove

Be an eccentric captivated by the whisperings of the heavens below

Neon purple and greens, an ephemeral glow

The underwater world yet to be explored by human beings

What myths and legends will remain true in our seeings?
