I know this is odd, but it's Saturday night and I'm sitting at home and thinking about jellyfish - moon jellies, in particular.
Why is that?
I took an afternoon off this week and spent it at the aquarium. They have a new room which has three tanks in a row - the jelly nursery (who knew that jellies grew on a weird round plate), the baby jellies and the grown-up jellies. And I couldn't help but imagine music into that room watching the jellies swirl through the tank - although it took me a little while to figure out exactly what music I wanted to be playing. I think it's a toss-up between Chopin's Fur Elise or Leonard Cohen's Tacoma Trailer.
Both pieces of music have that relaxed, beautiful circular movement just like the jellyfish and I know - without a single doubt - that I could have stood in front of that tank for hours, just watching. I want the jellyfish as my screensaver - I want the music with it.
Better than a massage or yoga any day.
