OK, so I just learned the coolest thing—the Italian word for jellyfish is “medusa.” Can you believe it?!! I have been walking around exclaiming how interesting this is to myself and my fiance since I learned this last night. It’s things like this that make me understand that poetry lives in our language—it’s just there. Now, I would just like to hear an Italian use this word in context like, “Hey, I saw a medusa in the water!” (in Italian of course).
Here’s my rendition of a jellyfish for my natural patterns alphabet. I’m almost half done with the series—only 15 to go! (possible sarcasm here? No, actually, these are so fun to do that I will be sad when they’re done!)
