Unexpected Beauty

November 6, 2017

“Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.”

I thought of this quote today, and in my mind I remembered it as a Japanese Haiku.

When I looked the quote up and found out it was Ovid I have to admit I was disappointed. Dude gets enough air time already, you know?

But still the fact I was thinking of the quote proves his point. Fish appear everywhere, even in the Greco Roman homeland of capitalist patriarchy.

As a witch though, I also see that instead of hooking fish in dark, obscure pools, we could drop them there. We could repopulate the world with fish. And coral. And endangered species of whales while we’re at it.

Point is: how would it change things if you put something beautiful in an unexpected place today?
