Fish Bowl

Isn't it incredible finding something new and incredible in your neighborhood, especially if you've lived there your whole life. It's crazy, never knowing that there was an undiscovered paradise right down the street, tucked away on a vacant road, or a hidden field with plenty of trees to sit on in quiet. Maybe someone amazing lives right next door to you, and you don't even know, or that mean old man really has a kind heart an an interesting past behind his rickety old fence and bare house. It's like discovering written letters that someone in your family had left for someone to look for; they're all around you, and without looking, you'd never even have found them. More and more and more, furiously fighting for your attention, until finally, fate cuts the strings for you. Then everything changes. It makes you sometimes wonder, How could I have ever lived without this?
