One fly over a pier, or almost..

Think about yourself to be under water, you are trapped, and you desperately want air to breath.



- This fish must have a horrifying, similar kind, thoughts when stranded on a pier, and the thirst of life in mind till the last gasp.

The life is unpredictable and you don't know what tomorrow brings, therefore, we should live now in this moment as it would be our last day in tellus but still do not left behind unfinished businesses. Moreover, we shouldn't spend our lives by fearing the death because that will reduce the sensation of surrounding things and happenings.

- ah well, I think that I am not be the best life management consultant... ;)

I named this the fish: "Prometheus" ( - don't know its real name)

Ps. Prometheus was the rebel godin Greek mytology; in defiance of Zeus, he gave fire and other comforts to the mortals on the earth.

Prometheus was a not a fool, but why else would he rebel against Zeus? He tried to trick Zeus (who knows all and sees all) with a false sacrifice. How foolish can you get? Prometheus also stole fire from Zeus and gave it to the primitive mortals on the earth. Zeus did not punish Prometheus alone, he punished the entire world for the effrontery of this rebel god.
Prometheus was the son of Iapetos and Klymene (Clymene). His name means Forethought.
Prometheus was a god long before Zeus took the Throne of Eternity. He fought for Zeus against the devising Kronos (Cronos), but Prometheus never had true respect for Zeus. He feared that the new Olympians had no compassion for each other or the mortals on the earth below. To show his disdain, Prometheus prepared two sacrifices and, in an attempt to belittle father Zeus, he made one sacrifice of fat and bones and the other of the finest meat. The trick was, Prometheus had wrapped the fat in such a way that it looked to be the most sincere tribute of the two. Zeus saw through the trick and magnanimously controlled his anger. He warned Prometheus but did not punish him.
