In the river that runs through the animal forest, the guppy was swimming. The stingray swam by and greeted her.
“Hello,” said the stingray, “I am the stingray. Who are you?”
“I am the guppy”, said the guppy.
“Nice to meet you”, said the stingray, who was starting to learn how to keep a conversation going.
“Okay, then I’ll reveal this”, said the guppy, inspired to do the same. “I am plugged in. In fact, I do not live here.”
“Oh,” said the stingray, “I do not live here either. I live in the depth of the ocean.”
“Then”, said the guppy, “you must have asked yourself the question.”
“Which question?”, asked the stingray.
“Well”, said the guppy. “What the network is.”
“Exactly”, said the stingray. “How did that deep end come to be in the coral? It disturbs the whole network. That indeed has kept me wondering for quite a long time now.”
You can continue reading in my book with fables that is published by BoekScout and can be found in their webshop.
The book is bilingual: Dutch-English and is titled:
HOE HET ZO GEKOMEN IS / HOW IT ALL CAME TO BE
psychologische fabels / psychological fables
*As in all fables, the stories mirror human behaviour. Through the animals’ characters, we actually look at ourselves and our society. The fables are contemplative, yet vivid and quite humorous.*
