Floating Along

Wednesday 22 April 2009

Text by Morusque. Below is a translation.

There was an old man who lived on a bridge. One day, he decided to put a window on the floor, so that he could watch the water flow by. He enjoyed it very much. He said hello to the fish and the fish replied. The conversations were always short because the fish swam by very quickly. However, sometimes he was able to learn their first name. Every day he met new friends, whom he never saw again. He liked to imagine them sailing in the sea, and told himself that he, too, would some day rejoin them. Within a few months, he built himself a nice raft, and one morning sailed out for good. While he was sailing, he suddenly had a feeling that a big fish was observing him from above.
