We all love fairytales !
Everyone grew up,with fairytales, whether in the Kalahari around a cozy campfire, or snuggled up against a Grandpa in a rocker in Cincinnati, or inside a warm, candle-lit igloo.
But does this differentiate humans from all our other brother species of animals?
Most certainly not.
A big 'if' exists though, to most people, and this too may fall by the wayside
as we seek to understand the language of the whales, who might very well spin tales of historical giants and diminuiive whale chicks among their long and distant communications.
Think about it.
Just like :
Many other animals use tools.
Many others use aggression against members of their own species, a hallmark of mankind we’d like to change.
So, too,communicating is a given in every other specie among other members of that same specie, and interspecially, too.
Maybe all those frog croaks and whistles and thuds and tapping sounds are
communicating stories of days of old.
Maybe that haunted look in thelittle babies of all species who’ve been
deprived of the contact with their own societies stems from the lack of handed-down culture as well as from the need for physical closeness and caring.
Maybe those lullabies and fairytales we love are in fact universal to all
species - although, of coures, with different themes of interest to each group.
We know one thing, though, it’s stupid to assume anything.
It’s also egocentric to attempt to isolate our specie from the whole
group of animals.
Most likely manatees hold their little o nes under a fin and croon stories
they’ve heard from their own mamas, and mama bears groan little nursery
rhymes to theirs, just as most obviously the birds do to their little birdlings.
Growing up does not diminish our love of fantasy, and of our interest in mermaids, angels, and fairies. Of dragons and quests and sea monsters and princes and princesses either.
Why should it?
The essence of entertainment and contentment is found in exercising the mind.
A mind at play is a beautiful and creative thing.
So, stretch your own imagination and see beyond the borders of the mundane with us.
We’re adding stories and sections all the time, so swim often to FairyTale Mermaid !
