Music and my Horrible Predicament.

Music is the healing of the soul. It is also the healing of predicaments. Just think, if more people listen to music, then they would not have to worry about staying scarred forever from a horrible predicament. But not as horrible as mine.
My predicament.
Now, how to go about talking about this one, this predicament?
Mine was earth shattering, ego shattering, life shattering. It almost shattered everything I had, I did, I wanted, I dreamed of, everything was knocked right out of me. Gone. Then it was gone. Everything was gone, like on moving day. But, like moving day, you always find something left behind, like a sock or a broken, stubby pencil that was not as important. What was left behind in me was like that, except it was very very important and I clung to it like it was my life.
I left behind my... hope.
Yes, my hope.
My hope that everything would be ok, that everything would be fixed. My hope that I could pull myself out from this. My hope... My hope... this list could go on forever, because I needed hope. I needed it more than anything.
Hope.
Music.
My Horrible Predicament.
All things we can learn from, that I can learn from.
Because learning is helping.
It always helps.

Scroll down, and you will see fish.

I want to talk to you about fish.
Fish. Yes. That is all that this post will be about. You know what fish are, don't you? They are majestic sea animals that live in what we always, always take for granted (and sometimes tend to overuse). Yes, we do. Don't deny it. We so do take their home for granted. We haven't yet grasped the concept that, hmm, maybe, animals live in that habitat. Hmm. And as you see, those fish don't seem to mind, but not because they just have forgiving (tiny) hearts, but because they are getting killed for people to eat. Yes. That is what happens to fish in the place we call a "beach." That is one of their predicaments that they encounter during their short lives. They are in a predicament. That proves that everyone and everything has encountered a predicament in their lives, and they aren't about to deny it. What is there to deny?
So go ahead. I want you to do three things. One, look at these fish:
 Quote from http://jenniferjoycampbell.blogspot.com/
These are animated fish who, even though they are animated, have family who has encountered predicaments. They even have predicaments with their lack of food. Two, I want you to think long and hard about predicaments. Long and Hard. Yes. Capitals. This really does require the right mindset and the proper amount of thinking time. There is a lot to think about.
Three, I want you to scroll down, take a good look at the fish on your screen, and... feed them by clicking your mouse. That's right. Feed them.
Come on.
I know you want to.
