Welcome to the Fishbowl

Welcome to the Fishbowl

(not related to Kenny... although I love the song)

Welcome to Project Fishbowl, folks.  Just a blog about stuff... really just stuff.  I've tried unsuccessfully to start other blogs... just never really followed through.  But, in an effort to be productive as a hobby... and a way to write down my observations about life in general.  So, hopefully, it will be an enjoyable experience.  Yes, there will be shameless plugs taking you to Amazon to buy more stuff... what the heck.... might as well make some beer money while writing this.

Funny thing about fishbowls... it's a world in a world.  All self contained, and completely visible to the entire outside world.  Life inside just goes on and on while outside we watch.  Each life inside looks for a way to survive and thrive.  There are sharks, guppies, snails, and show-offs, all of them looking to make and impact in their environment and find their niche.

When the fishbowl is in balance, life thrives.  The plants flourish, the fish and animals grow large, and produce more.  There are no fights between species and the fishbowl is beautiful and serene.  When the fishbowl is out of balance, things go bad... fast.  The plants start get brown.  The animals fight.  Things die.  Just overall, not a good thing.

But we all watch these things from the outside.  We try to correct any imbalances, pull out the dead or dying animals (and flush them), or just wonder who will come out on top.  It makes me wonder... are the fish watching us and thinking the same thing?  Do they wonder what we are doing, what we think about, etc?  Probably not, they are just simple fish... they just want food.
