Inspiration from Diana Nyad

Assignment #3: Create a figure
I was inspired by Diana Nyad, especially her historic swim from Cuba to Florida. This woman is fierce! I wondered what it was like swimming that distance, alone, throughout the dark night with a possible encounter with sharks. Unexpected visitations became a metaphor for depression, and how it can pop up suddenly while we are swimming through life. However, because I an optimistic that depression can be handled, it's in two pieces so there can be some distance between the great Bummer Shark.
