This week's Illustration Friday prompt is "power", so naturally, I drew this little fish.
With the end of summer upon us, our minds are (hopefully) turning to thoughts of school and learning. My tuting schedule is chock full as I want it to be with the test prep season in full swing, and the kids are getting their schedules and supplies in order. And oh yeah, I've got the student thing going on too.
Knowledge is power.
I've also been schooling myself in fish - ha... get it?? *sorry*. Recall that my little fish tank recently went all Armageddon on me. Since then, I've been trying to learn what went wrong. During this education, I've become bound and determined to foster an aquarium rebirth like no other.
So I've been google schooling and youtube schooling and turning into the resident fish geek. I explained to Magnum how, as our nest is becoming empty, I am satisfying my need to take care of SOMEthing. Fish it is.
Yesterday, Meego, Wolfgang, and I visited a local fish shop (I'm still keeping Fridays dumb) that I learned of. The building was just a hole in the wall, but we walked inside and it was like a Marine Dream. BEAU-tiful aquariums, a lovely assortment of fish and other reef dwellers...
I stood in front of the buncha-gallons tank as the fish swam around, giving me the eye.
"Think you could keep me alive and happy like this? Do you have the POWER??", they asked.
