For those who romanticize a burial at sea, the company Eternal Reefs offers an innovative solution. It mixes the cremated remains of a person with concrete to create a “pearl” onto which loved ones can etch personal messages, handprints or (environmentally friendly) mementos. The pearl is then encased in a “reef ball” that is dropped into the sea, where it provides a new habitat for fish and other sea life, helping encourage a vibrant ecosystem. The circle of life at work!
A world of dew
And within every dewdrop
The Liquid Rainbow is caused by a unique phenomena: a red plant – Macarenia clavigera – growing in the riverbed. Other colors come from black rocks, green algae, blue water and yellow sand, producing an iridescent effect. The river also features waterfalls, pools and caverns, making it even more dramatic.
Don’t insult the alligator until you’ve crossed the river. ~ Haitian Proverb
No one tests the depth of the river with both feet. ~ Ghanaian Proverb
For the real feeling of walking over water, Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat water is surrealistically clear.
Her crown and glory writhing and hissing, rising then tasting the air
Man averted his eyes and medusa grinned in her underwater lair
She knew mere morals could not appreciate her rare beauty stare
Be an admirer, explore the underwater hidden beauty treasures
Leaving behind predetermined societal measures
Bioluminescence lit up the waters above
Jellyfish swimming in and out of man-made discarded masks and a hospital glove
Be an eccentric captivated by the whisperings of the heavens below
Neon purple and greens, an ephemeral glow
The underwater world yet to be explored by human beings
What myths and legends will remain true in our seeings?
