worse things happen at sea by 

The Kraken by Tennyson

Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber’d and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

When I was small I loved drawing fish, I was hopelessly addicted, big fish, small fish, all sorts of fish – I drew them all. I even had a section of wall that mom let me loose on with a marker pen, it was soon filled with schools of fish swimming across the wall paper.

I’m a bit bigger now, and I still love drawing and creating.

I even draw a fish now and again for old times sake.
