The last fish…

Leave a Reply





.     The last fish that the wise fisherman caught dangled from empathy.  


.  [Side note]:  When i was young, i used to have a Red-Bellied Piranha for many years… before, during, and after college.  The red-bellied piranha is considered to be highly carnivorous, while most non-piranhas in the family are primarily herbivorous plant eaters. It should be noted that the red-bellied piranha is actually omnivorous.  The vast majority of the teeth are hidden by the thick, flexible lips and are not visibly exposed.  They periodically shed their teeth and grow new replacement teeth… thus keeping their teeth razor sharp.  The teeth truly are razor sharp.  One cannot use a regular fish-net while transporting them; they can instantly eat their way right through a regular net!  I used to use metal colanders instead of nets.  Within aquariums, they can chop up thick plastic plants easily in one snap. They are very beautiful fish in their own way.

By the way, one used to fish a lot; one used to be an avid fisherman… catching all kinds of fish when others couldn’t. I haven’t fished for many years now.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
