As soon as I ready her prompt, I thought of the Aquarium. I love the aquarium! The fish are so beautiful and ugly, alien and familiar and different and cool all at the same time. Like my personal favorites, the Rockfish. They always make me smile. And want to break out the camera or sketchbook. Then there's these little guys, hiding in their barnacle condos, complete with fancy landscaping:
I spent a while trying to come up with something else to do. Something that wouldn't take quite as much time. But as soon as the thought popped into my mind a part of me latched on like a bulldog and wouldn't let go. Like I'd be breaking a promise if I didn't follow through.
So I listened, and rearranged my schedule. Showed up right as it opened. That's definitely the time to go.
Thanks for the suggestion Sally!
