Bubbles bounce like cheerful jellyfish against one another, linking together as they rise, allowing more atoms inside the gas to explore their new colleagues. Air bursts from the little mouths of thousands of different species of sea life. From purple shining seahorses to yellow and black eels, everything produces light so bright that one would need to squint their eyes in order to see the beauty which lies in the depths. Little ripples form every time an octopus wriggles a tentacle, every time a piece of coral breaks off and is devoured by predators.

I crossed over the bay, thinking about the sea life under my very foot. I stared out into the open, wondering how far it goes. How far does it go? I let the foamy dew sink in between my toes, swirling around, causing me to laugh out loud. And I danced.

I spun in a movement so calming. I kicked sand up off the ground into people's lemonade, but they didn't seem to mind. I jumped, twirled, and crashed down, letting my tears soak my face. The water sprayed up into my ears and nose. Everyone stared And then it happened, then I saw it; me.
