I am terrible at keeping resolutions so I’ve disguised them as suggestions for making my life more meaningful.I find inspiration in some strange places and the aquarium at Sea World became one. You walk into a dark room and press a button which illuminates the tank in front of you. Jellyfish glowed with an inner light and danced to a silent melody. I stood mesmerized long enough to annoy the crowd in back of me. As I exited, I blinked my eyes in the sun and kept imagining the beautiful ballet. So often I don’t take the time to really see. I don’t stand still. It’s easier to skim.I might have missed this performance if I hadn’t taken time to press a button. I saw them in their own light. In other light these graceful creatures may pass unnoticed or are viewed as an annoyance to an unsuspecting swimmer.I need to take time to notice and appreciate.
