Done with Fish

Adaptation has been playing, edited and with commercial interruption, on the sattelite recently. Susan Orleans is talking to John Laroche :

John Laroche: You know why I like plants?
Susan Orlean: Nuh uh.
John Laroche: Because they're so mutable. Adaptation is a profound process. Means you figure out how to thrive in the world.
Susan Orlean: [pause] Yeah but it's easier for plants. I mean they have no memory. They just move on to whatever's next. With a person though, adapting almost shameful. It's like running away.


I was thinking about memory, and change. I'd really rather it went something like this, though.

John Laroche: Then one morning, I woke up and said, "Fuck fish!" I renounce fish, I will never set foot in that ocean again. And there hasn't been a time where I have stuck so much as a toe back in that ocean.
Susan Orlean: But why?
John Laroche: Done with fish.

hello - so this is how i am rewarded for checking old bookmarks and re-visiting old haunts. I read your blog so long ago - one of the first i discovered. You were always a great writer - i am glad to see you back. (now, maybe this will inspire me to neglect my own page less...)
