There are random moments where I feel like the only thing I want/need is to spend the rest of my life in an aquarium-walled room, supine, with "An Ending (Ascent)" on loop.

I could watch the moon jellies for hours.

That camera of the Blue Cavern does not even come close to doing it justice. This video gives you some sense of the scale. Three stories tall, and when you're right up next to the glass, it's disorienting -- you feel as if you're under water.

We have something like this in the Birch Aquarium in San Diego. Just sitting quietly for awhile, with the sea, speaks to my heart.

Oooh, the sunset one is pretty this very minute.

I only got to this lst night after the aquarium was closed, and the lights were turned off. It was deeply relaxing, a good suggestion that it was time for beddy byes - especially with the Eno song linked to by the eponymous Pope Xanax IV, above.
