A while ago, I was reading a book about evolution. Human evolution, to be exact.
At some point, my mind started wandering even further back in time, into the time when life on earth was mostly found in ocean(s).
I pictured this funny looking but pretty clever little fish-guy, thinking vigorously what’s beyond the watery plane he’s currently living in.
I smiled when I thought about the fish-guy taking a peek from the water, and gasping a bubbly gasp in amazement. There’s something out there!
Then millions and millions of years went on before my eyes, when the clever little fish-guy jumped on the shore, and grew a pair of legs.
And then I had to re-read the last few pages of my book.
The next day I made OUT OF THE WATER. Ode to my silly little day fairytale about a clever little fish-guy.
