It’s the Age

For most of my teenage years (or was it prior to that heady time?), I believed it was ‘The Age of Aquariums‘ and not Aquarius. Don’t know where I could’ve got the idea from, but it stuck, and I hear the music with the gurgle of bubbles that ripple the surface of fake ponds.

I play the music when cleaning the tank, just to keep them (fishies and muso’s) calm.

FOWC

But now, thanks to lots of people who wanted to set me straight, who got a good laugh out of it (not to count the comments – aka, guffaws – about the non-tonal attempts at singing), I understand.

Fish have a glass bowl called an aquarium, usually full of colourful critters that suck at the edges of life.

People have a sky-bowl called an age, and that one, only one, was Aquarius, full of colourful critters that suck at anything stinky and green.

I still don’t understand why they can’t be one and the same thing …


Anyway, just dropping in … still editing, almost there, need a massage and a good swim to ease the kinks, and the cover crashed and needed to be started again from the beginning, and software, software, software – the bane of my life. Or is that the gremlin who doesn’t appreciate so many spiders hiding at the back of the desk? Too bad, gremlin. Spiders stay, gremlins go.
