There are lots of sea creatures we share the ocean with. We assume it’s ours but it’s not. We had a huge rash of a nonstinging type of jellyfish wash into shore this week. Everyone got out of the water and freaked out as the purple carcasses littered the beach. They are harmless but spectacular to look at, called “Sailor Jellyfish” for the said on the top of their backs sticking up in the air. We have these other nonstingers called “moon Jellyfish” and they are just a round disc the side of the top of a 16 oz can of tomatoe sauce or something. But we also have purple Man O War show up and all the red ‘danger’ flags go up at Lifeguard stations as these guys have these long, trailing tentacles that have the sting. The sting is not fatal but hurts so badly people wish it was.
Then they get a short time capsule sense of how it feels to have anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or schizoaffective or schizophrenia or have a horrible degenerative illness like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, organ failure, Lupus or chronic pain that makes life a hell on earth. We already know about that.
