Feeling like a castaway? Need a coach or mentor but no response to your SOS on SMS? Don’t send a message in a bottle, no man or woman is an island, we’re on to it!
The news that a message in a bottle has been found floating in the ocean or washed up on a beach conjures up the idea that someone must have gone to a great deal of effort to get their message out there
Some interesting facts about the message in a bottle:
Messages in bottles have been used since time immemorial to send distress signals, monitor ocean currents and carry letters to loved ones from those stranded at sea.
The Greek Philosopher Theophrastus was the first to send a message in a bottle in 310 B.C. by tossing it into the Mediterranean Sea as part of an experiment. Ever since, people have often relied on the oceans to get the word out in times of distress.
Invitations to prospective pen pals and letters to actual or imagined love interests have also been sent as messages in bottles.
In 2005 a group of teenaged migrants were abandoned in a boat off the Costa Rica coast by the crew who was smuggling the passengers illegally. Without the aid of any typical means of modern communication the passengers placed a message in a bottle that read “Please help us” and cast it adrift on the ocean in the hope that it would soon be found. Fisherman subsequently discovered the bottle and delivered it to a nearby World Heritage site island. The island staff notified their headquarters and the castaways were rescued and taken to the island to recuperate.
