it really is about the oil spill(s), how they effect so much, probably more than we even know yet. i set out to do a "space" manip, but couldn't keep the sea life out of my mind, so i put them in. i like your thoughts about it, though. would that i were such a heavy thinker!
You are, babe... but I have put the oil spill out of my mind because Rice, my ambulance partner is in the business of knowing all their lame attemtps to fix it and knows that none of them is going to work. The estimations are that in four years, only THEN will the oil stop flooding the sea as it's doing now and by then, it will have already been raining oil and killing everything it touches directly and indirectly.
So since I know we're done here in a few years, I've emptied my mind and made room for the usual thoughts.
