Zen

All of us have different definitions of peace
A feeling that we probably cannot share
I’ve always wondered how it would be to live underwater
Minus the diving gear and all
Then I stumbled across this video of the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium
And as I watched it on full screen
 It felt like zen 

I have been very vocal about my opinion of the captivity of marine animals, and I think that it is awful that beautiful creatures as whale sharks, among others should have to spend the entirety of their lives in a closed tank, swimming in circle – going nowhere.

The objective of this post is not to promote the Kuroshio Sea Tank or the sea animal shows that this aquarium houses, in any manner.

  1. There is this strange familiarity water has. When you are in it ensconced and alone you aren't really alone for its swallowed you whole. A lot like love. Its all around you when you are in it. You see though it and its still there – standing.
