Marine Biology

by Greg Santos

The deep sea anglerfish is a lonely creature. It lives in extreme conditions where there is little difference between day and night. It lurks, waving its bioluminescence back and forth, in the hopes of luring another creature into its orbit. Good meals are hard to come by. Good friends, even more so. Sometimes the only company the anglerfish ever has is its own glow, but even that, you have to admit, is better than nothing at all.

The feeling of loneliness you evoke--that bioluminescent glow being better company than nothing at all--just unbelievably beautiful : )
