"The Girl Who Lived on the Bottom of the Sea"
There once was a girl who lived on the bottom of the sea
Born with gills in her neck, it’s the only place she felt free
Swimming and floating, to be left alone was her wish
Living a peaceful life amidst the coral and fish.
But growing up on dry land, they called her “The Wretched Gill Girl”
Cruel people kept her in a cage, and sneers and jeers they would hurl
She endured their mockery and laughter, so jealous and petty
Until she escaped from her prison, and dove off the jetty.
Bidding the surface world “adieu”, she made a new life for herself
Formed a country of her own, deep between the continental shelf
Leaving those awful folks behind, she has no more reason to frown
And when the ice caps finally melt, she can watch them all drown. :-)

The underwater search for the flight recorders from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 could be completed in five to seven days, Australian officials said on Saturday.

I’d like to start a day, just a day, without touching my phone.
I’d like to disconnect my interaction with people through my phone, just a day. Just a day.
I’d love to see, not just look.
I’d love to listen, not just hear.
I’d love to reflect, not just think.
Just a day.
And maybe one day, maybe today, I’ll find myself again.
