I have been making a point lately to unsubscribe from all of the e-newsletters that flood my inbox each day. It’s like I think that I can’t possibly survive without them, and yet I almost never (ever) open any of them.

Instead, I skip them, only to do a massive purge every few weeks. Which takes forever and makes me feel like a loser because I didn’t open any of them. And all of that information is forever lost to me so now what am I going to talk about on the rare occasion that I speak with another adult at a party? Why oh why did I even bother going to college in the first place?

Etc, etc. I could go on forever.

But for some reason, the daily newsletter from Digg still arrives. And while I delete it half the time, the other half of the time I open it and find something really cool. Like this photograph of a whale leaping out of the water.

I love whales. Always have. I think they are smarter than we are. And I think it’s important to remember that we are sharing this world with creatures that are so much more dignified and beautiful than we could ever be. We owe it to them not to f*ck it all up.

Just a thought…
