About water and routine.

This is abouth two young fish swimming along and happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nudges them and sais, “Morning boy’s, how is the water?”
And the two young fish swimm along a bit until eventually one of them looks over at the other and go’s: “What the hell is water?”

This is about avoiding blind certainties and close mindedness.
This is about concentration on critical awareness of yourself, of paying attention about what is going on right in front of you and inside of you.
This is about avoiding routine, the day after week after month after year deadly routine.
This is about life BEFORE death.

It is about the real value of a real education, which has almost nothing to do with knowledge, and everything to do with simple awareness;
awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sights all around us, all the time, that we have to keep reminding ourselves over and over:
“This is water” “This is water”

David Foster Wallace
