the year of the fish

yes i know the Chinese think it's the year of the dog, but in fact this past year has been One Year of Fish. as in, one year ago mysfit & i decided we needed a means of continuing our conversations across time zones.

the year since has seen the birth of the tourist, the chaos journals, the short life of the Fish of the Day, new ichthyologists & tourists & portraits & the ever-expanding blogosphere.

should we have gone with one of our many other possible titles for this space?

can we manage to avoid repeating ourselves?


Delirium.

what is the lifespan of the fish?

have we amused your minds, excited your spirits and warmed your bellies?

as a sort of bookend, or epigraph, or chapter header if you will, or for continuity purposes, etcetera, a photo of the current pope:


Pope Benedict XVI

this thing is definitely still on...

17 little fish:

Happy Anniversay...or Birthday...or whatever! I still remember the first time I visited your blog and saw a beautiful picture of Audrey Tautou...that sold me right away! Glad you all are still swimming and look forward to more fish tales in the coming year.

I think Anne put it rather nicely. Anyone who can say they are not the better for having met you...well, er....they'd just plain be lyin'!

And you'd better not be going anywhere. This fish has has loads of stamina and built-in radar.......

I'm not at all certain how I stumbled upon this Piscean smorgasbord of delights, but the bloggiverse is the richer for it and my days more full of suitably delirous intermissions. Well done.

Well, cats love fish so I guess this is where we go for our daily tidbits. :-)

Go fish!

Yay for the Mighty Fish! I'm attempting to re-enter the world of blog, on a different plane.

The former fish has evolved, and yet. . .The Wheel Keeps Turning. . .One can only assume that more madness will ensue. . .Let's look forward, to the ride ahead. . .
