I am of the opinion that jellyfish are wonderful company to keep. Just be sure to ensure that there are inches of glass between you and their hypnotic vicious tentacles.
I had the pleasure of loitering wide-eyed and gobsmacked in their rather sophisticated lair that can be found within the aquarium in Enoshima, Japan. Here, blooms of jellyfish waltz with ethereal delicacy in a darkened room. Their glazed enclosures, emanate sheer luminous fluctuations that lull some, curiously, mainly men, to sleep.
Were it not for the intermittent snores of dozing fellows in the dimness, I felt like I were surrounded with true magic. And in this world where we demand explanations for everything (our have it imposed upon us like it or not), I was happy to not read any of the scientific commentary for these jellyfish. I decided to believe in magic.
P.S. The aquarium in Enoshima is generally of the international tourist radar. It is however, a popular date location for Japanese. For year’s I’ve wanted to visit for a Japanese style date with Hiro. We made it! Finally, though our date did include our son who seemed thoroughly entranced – when he was awake, at least.
