The latest issue of the Economist introduced me to this book:

I have not read it yet, but I am convinced that it will be one of those books that I want to take with me everywhere - the type that one comes across only once or twice in a lifetime. Yes, of course it is very silly to get so excited about a book that one has not read. But you see, I love sea creatures, and above all, seahorses. They are the most intriguing of all in the underwater world. I mean, give me any other species where the male gives birth to a thousand little ones at a time, and I am sold. Add great looks (half fish, half horse), a sense of quiet and mystery, and it doesn't get any better than that. I found some great seahorse buys at Etsy:

The bow keeps it from being boyish though. .s. I can't read your blog in google reader anymore? weird.

Eyeliah: I might have accidentally changed the settings, it should work now. Let me know if not, and I'll look into it! :)
