Mom hung a big stained glass circle in the backyard’s door. It showed a dolphin in the sea.

When you looked through the waters, the world behind was twisted and strange. Gazing at it, I kept imagining a different place, half rain forest, half alien planet. A place of adventure that would wash away my boring town. I wanted to jump through the glass hoop and emerge over there.


That dolphin looked like it was jumping so I wondered : when the dolphins at the aquarium loop through the hoop, do they too hope to emerge free on the other side?
