Goldfish

The Goldfish, 1912 by Henri Matisse


Humans: 


“We’ve got to DO SOMETHING!"



Earth: 


"Why no. 

No you do not. 

Please, please please 

don’t do anything!


Sit quietly in a quiet room. 


Listen to birds, or the trickle of water, or waves on a beach. 


Hear the sounds of silence.


Daydream. 


Stare at goldfish in a bowl for hours.


Nap.


Please remember this.

You don't have to do anything."
