Swimming upstream within a fish tank..To Dream

Vividly living and moving 

The last two days I have been packing up my clothes for my upcoming move across country from New York to San Francisco. I remember back when I first did this move (four times ago), I did not have much. I never have had much. Now, I have to hire a moving company. I try on my clothes and keep so for they are aspirational. I try on some clothes and throw some out for I can never truly aspire for them.

Every once in a while I stop and look and reminisce. Just now I stopped and looked at some random photos. I came across these slightly muted photos that despite their muted nature are vivid.  Its from within a fishtank within a building in which people are living.


Can you imagine living within a fish tank?

Living with the fishes must be somewhat both calming and invigorating.

In my moment of zen, I dream of swimming upstream

For many, my move came unexpectedly

For many, my move represents that I want a new challenge

For a few, my move left a void

For me, I know my move was bold and brings a grand unknown

In my moment of zen, I dream of swimming upstream

and defying all odds


“Remember, a dead fish can float downstream,

but it takes a live one to swim upstream.”
