I love this story! It is old, it comes from the 2nd Centry, probably from Greece. Sailors mistake sleeping whales for islands. They would tether their ships to the “island”, disembark and set up camp. The whale would then plunge to the depths of the ocean sinking all the ships and drowning the sailors.

With the exception of artists, inventors, and teenagers - we humans are diurnal daytime creatures on the whole, and although it’s one thing to be out and about during the night in a street lit urban environment, it’s a very different scenario if you find yourself in, say… oh, I don’t know, a forest per se. Where, if you’re lucky, you may hear the unmistakable cry or hoot of an Owl: natures very own nocturne, a stark reminder of the unknown peril of night, and a creature that has featured heavily in myth and folklore throughout the ages.
