The life of a jellyfish is full of trials and tribulations. Predators, food shortages, ruthless competitors, sickness just to name a few. It can sometimes be hard just to keep your head below water -- if you have a head, that is. The successful jellyfish will take it all in stride though. Just keep doing that thing, whatever it is, and maintain a cool, seaworthy temperature.
It's always tempting to think about some kind of cosmic reset. Under ideal conditions, there are jellyfish who can revert back to the polyp stage of life and regenerate, as it were. For most of us, however, there can only be perseverance. At some point, the music will stop and we must take our final bow. In the meantime, just gotta keep doing that thing.
Here's a grand example of just that from the great Les McCann -- doing his thing to the utmost. If you come across McCann's live album, "How's Your Mother," check out the amazing version of this song there also. Hiphop music owes a lot to Les McCann for the very many samples borrowed from his songs.
