This blog takes its name from a scene in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy where a missile spontaneously transforms into a whale miles above the surface of an alien planet. We are offered a glimpse into the mind of this poor creature, as he discovers himself and the world around him. His cheerful disposition and optimism at this new life ahead of him come to an abrupt halt as he crashes into the ground.

We are all much like this whale.

We come into this world knowing very little about ourselves…

…or the world around us.

The things that I write here are my way of processing who I am, and what in the world is going on around me before my own eventual… SPLAT!
