in the realm of really cool

Early this morning I awake to what sounds like wounded puppies. In my half-dream state I call out, “somebody’s hurting puppies!”

I stumble out of the bedroom and into the livingroom.  Baby is on the couch reading his virtual New York Times.

“Did you hear those puppies?” I ask.

“Those weren’t puppies… those were orcas,” he replies.

“Oh,” I stumble into the bathroom, “okay.”

Apparently, my husband had found the The Center for Biological Diversity‘s offering of FREE endangered species ringtones. High-quality, authentic sounds of some of the world’s most threatened animals. The idea is that the free ringtones will inspire conversation and visits to the center’s website, as well as invite you to participate in animal rights activism.

You can preview the ringtones HERE

It’s a bit sad and beautiful all at once. It certinainly makes me want to go out and save some animals, though.

One of my favourites: the Mexican Gray Wolf

    This is a really nice bit of writing. It’s almost prose … are you branching off into prose now?

    Keep up the good work!
