‚Äú A jellyfish, if you watch it long enough, begins to look like a heart beating. It doesn't matter what kind: the blood-red Atolla with its flashing siren lights, the frilly flower hat variety, or the near-transparent moon jelly, Aurelia aurita. It's their pulse, the way they contract swiftly, then release. Like a ghost heart - a heart you can see right through, right into some other world where everything you ever lost has gone to hide.‚ÄĚ
