Jelly-Like Rings in the Sea of My Body


I took my parents to this overlook in CA of the wild ocean (my subconscious/emotional body) with massive extraordinary dark waves threatening to envelop us even as we gaped at them behind glass from this raised spectator lookout area. My dad said Why didnt you take us to the other side (the more placid lake area where some were swimming and like seals playing this game of get the ring)? I ran and dived into that more shallow area. There was hair everywhere. I dived for all the jelly-like colored plastic rings. What would my prize be? The emotional body sea was in the distance now. I felt lacking. There didn’t look to be any prizes, just people lethargically fishing for these rings....
