Sometimes – when we are confronted with new people or new situations, that seem completely alien to us – we feel like a fish out of water. Unable to breathe, you lie in the sand, yapping for air, the pebbles scratch your sensitive flesh, that is not used to the hot windy air around you. Then, when you have ceased paying attention to the fight for survival, the waves begin to take hold of you and pull you into the ocean. As we start to swim, we realize how our world has just got bigger to the point of being boundless. We have never felt so much like a fish in the water before.
