newness

I walked past a tank of live squid. A TANK FULL OF SQUID. The sight of so many grabbed my attention, their movements struck me, and the simple fact that I had never seen such a sight became noteworthy. Strange little creatures. There they were, a whole bunch squirming, and floating, and undulating. This may be the norm, this tank may have existed all this time that I've existed on this planet, but I never saw it this way. I never walked on this block and this is not my norm. There are so many things here to make routine. I enjoy finding what's familiar, what is not. I'm enjoying these moments. There are so many I hardly have the time to record it all.
