The Blue, Blue Sea

It isn’t always, of course. Just like the sky is not all the time exactly blue. But that is what we think they are, and if we humans see them blue, how much more vivid would a magical creature perceive them?

bluemermaid1bsMaybe everything is so blue that mermaids long for the surface colours, lighter tones, more forget-me-not than deep azure, perhaps even rare sand beige of the beaches! After all, it’s the uncommon and rare that we learn to value, no matter where we grow up: on the surface or under the sea.

bluemermaid2bsEven magical ruins of ancient sunken cities with their strangely still operational fountains can become dull after you’ve marvelled at it for a few hundred years. It doesn’t matter anymore that one cannot figure out how the waterflow still behaves as on land and twirling about in the tickling bubbles can entertain one only for a few decades.

All of the sea scenery, the mesh mermaid tail and the jewelry are all available in the Under the Sea Expo. Most of the items are prizes in the hunt there (I’ve marked which ones in the credits). Dive in and enjoy slightly cooler moment of the summer!

There’s peace in the depths of the ocean. The embrace of the water is all-encompassing, world-defining. The currents carry life with them to a steady pulse, the comforting darkness hides one from the sharp, challenging threats.

mermaid1bsThe surface is scary: gateway to the unknown, the bright lights dancing on it hurting dark-accustomed eyes, the water’s movement more restless, unnerving. Surely it is inhabited by cruel hunters wishing to catch everything that moves and chain the life into suffering.

mermaid3bsWe all need to surface at one point or the other, but it is always good to remember where we came from. Comfort zones are necessary for gathering one’s strength to swim on: whether you journey on the surface or dive deeper.
