Graceful. Beautiful. Their undulating movements draw me in, momentarily hypnotizing me. Serene. Peaceful. Gliding nearly effortlessly through the water, their movement relaxes my body and clears my mind.
Sea jellies are usually my favorite aquarium exhibit. I could stand for hours watching them, and often my children have to drag me away to explore other sea life.
Watching jellies on our recent trip to Mystic Aquarium, I couldn't help but wonder what it feels like to be one, wafting rhythmically through the sea. How wonderful, the thought of no aching joints - made mostly of water and gelatinous mesoglea. Being more sea than sea creature.
