13 Different Types of Jellyfish You Should Know

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it’s always our self we find in the sea.”   —   E.E. Cummings

(I’ve got no major issue with the sea.  Salt water is supposed to be good for soothing your body, and all that stuff.  Just don’t drink it!  Also, they say that the sea is unforgiving.  And she is in many ways.  She’s home to killer whales, stinging jellyfish, a variety of sharks and other fishies with teeth that bite.  She also has riptides and rip currents that can really mess you up, or even kill you.  So, if you’re smart, you will show the sea the respect that she deserves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

E.E. Cummings | American poet | Britannica

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”   —   E.E. Cummings

(Maybe I should’ve written out his name in all lower-case letters?!?  One of the best known, and important, poets of the 20th Century, his first wife was also his cousin!  That’s a little odd, but also the marriage did not last long, only 2 months or so.  His second marriage only lasted three years.  He did much better with his common-law wife, Marion Morehouse, around 28 years.  He died from a stroke at only 67.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it was smoking related, but that’s just conjecture.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
