In which I sell fish…
Is it selfish to want people to pay attention? To ask how you are? To choose to spend time with someone who is hurting and not much fun to be around? Is it selfish to need time alone? Is it selfish to speak your mind? Or is it natural?
FISH LIVE IN SCHOOLS
How can I be one of a team and an individual at once? How can I make sure I learn forever?
How do I go with the flow whilst going my own way? How do I recharge energy? Where and why do I sleep?
FISH DON’T NEED BATHS
How can I take care of my health – spiritual and physical – in the simplest and most efficent way? How do I find the environment that works with me, when all around are things that restrict me?
FISH BREATHE UNDERWATER
How do I keep going under pressure? How do I let things flow through me? How do I float with my emotions, and not let them drown me?
FISH HAVE CLEVER IN THEM
How do I keep my brain in a good creative place?
How do I make my armour a soft cloak, not a hard prison? How do I work with the mirror to make something beautiful?
FISH ARE FISHY
How do I avoid making assumptions or suspicions? How do I stop worrying about what other people think of me?
FISH GET FISHED
How do I deal with change? How do I deal with the unexepected? How do I deal with being dragged into another world, or place? What do I do, when I’ve been caught, hook, line, and sinker? Why struggle? Where is this line taking me? Will I ever know, and how do I make friends with the fishers?
I thought about all of this for a while and decided the most logical thing to do is decide it is ok to be a mermaid. I’m not quite as good as being a fish as fishes are, but I can practice. It’s ok to let the human bits show.
