eyes always open

          1. the other is a tetra fish, and it’s clearly much dumber than the goldfish – it exhibits no curiosity in the world beyond the aquarium whatsoever.

  1. ๐Ÿ™‚ such a cool post – images sometimes complement micro-poems so well don’t they. Wisdom, or -simplicity indeed – maybe two sides of the same coin hahah

      1. That is such a great principle, David ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish i could live by it more wholeheartedly (will keep trying though), but I truly ADMIRE anyone who does/can!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Anna

  2. This is somehow wise, adorable (the pic), and sad (because we usually see fish like this through an acquarium wall) all at once. Love. โค๏ธŽ

          1. I read a beautiful book with a goldfish in it – a book my husband gave me one xmas – the perfect book for me at that time – it was called “The reader on the 6:27”

          2. Well, I loved it. And I don’t often read fiction… but he loves it (sci-fi mostly)… and that one for me turned out to be one of those that felt so true to life… maybe that’s why I loved it.

  3. I would have never imagined a gold fish as being wise but you said it and now I can’t think otherwise while staring at the two big eyes in the picture. ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ’œ
