This blue marble

Jonathan Livingston Jellyfish

genoa-aquarium-4That one free-floating jellyfish reminds me of Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull. The upside-down jellyfish actually considers upside as down, and the ocean floor as home. Just like the “breakfast flock” of the gulls Jonathan once called family, perhaps they are ignorant about what freedom really feels like?

(Although how would any of these know about freedom, living in a fish tank?)
