And while I find these fish, the whale sharks and sting rays fascinating, it's the small jellyfish display in an alcove that moves me most. Something about seeing these creatures mesmerizes me and it never gets old. As I said on my instagram feed, while there's a fine line between doubt and faith- something about seeing these jellyfish brings me the stillness and peace only certainty of divine invention can bring. So in a nutshell jellyfish renew my faith in God. Strange but beautiful nonetheless.
Three. As the header of this blog bears witness to, I love doodling. A few months ago my friend e-mailed me an article about how doodling helps you focus. She sat next to me in many a work meeting where I sketched and swirled circles and flowers and interesting owls until I filled my notepad completely. I can attest to the increased-focus-aspect of doodling as somehow the act of doodling inadvertently got me interested, every so slightly. . . in football. Sitting next to the spouse while he watched a game a few weeks ago, I began doodling to escape the game but ended up following every interception and touchdown and. . . liking it?
