Blue (Nancy Merrill Photography)

At least once a year I try to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  I love it there.  I wish I could live under the ocean, but since that isn’t possible, being at the aquarium staring into the the different tanks and pools is the next best thing.  The jellyfish are my ultimate favorite. I could sit and watch them for hours as they slowly move about in groups or alone.  It’s so peaceful and relaxing .  They are so slow and graceful.  As I watch them, my heart rate slows automatically, my brain stops thinking of a million things at once, and I just become mesmerized.  Jellyfish are amazing and weird creatures.
