The story of my conception starts with the meeting of two humans, one a swimmer and one a diver. They met at a pool… very romantic.
I can’t quite remember how I came to believe I was born a mermaid. Either they told me or I imagined it. Regardless, it’s what I believed and it anchored and justified my deep love of the sea, lakes, rivers and swimming.
I was a fish, of course. Spending all day in the ocean or in our neighbor’s pool. “Can you see my tail? I’m special, right?” I’d ask before dipping under the rippled surface.
As I continued to experience life and grow into adulthood, I realized I’d conjured this fantasy to escape my brokenhearted feelings of abandonment and loss.
I was 4 years old when she left. I was 4 years old when I realized she wasn’t coming back. I was 4 years old when I became a mermaid. I found peace in the water and waves, I was always safe and surrounded there.
This series is the first chapter of my journey, underwater with other people who are searching. Other people swimming through the waters looking for love and security. Others who feel the water around them and subconsciously remember being in utero.
The other Merpeople.
