On Melancholy Hill

#MusicMonday



Things to ruminate: "The name manatí comes from the Taíno, a pre-Columbian people of the Caribbean, meaning "breast." The manatee has been linked to folklore on mermaids. Native Americans ground the bones to treat asthma and earache. In West African folklore, they were sacred and thought to have been once human. Killing one was taboo and required penance."
