The Guppy and the Sharks
By Lisa Hering, February 20, 2020 (02/20/2020)
I, whose greatest fear is the ocean, unfathomably afraid, awake and find that I am in scuba gear in a coral garden looking for something. My memory slowly returns to me, and I know I am looking for my past, a past that might be ultimately changeable. Here, I find Atlantis and all its treasures, but old and abandoned, not like the place I used to know, not like the place where I spent many years with my son. But when my old friends, the whale sharks, recognize my scent and come around to swim with me, I learn what I came to learn.
