The next day she gives Gus a plan that he must follow of catching a fish with her techniques. He finds his equilibrium on page 274 “Equilibrium derived from a kind of inner balance: it transmitted itself from the soul to the mind, and from the mind to the body, and when a man possessed of it put his hand to an art or craft he was capable of unheard of feats.” Gus’s equilibrium was his love for Eddy and he states on the same page “Why shouldn’t love be my Equilibrium? Why shouldn’t love be the forceless force running through the wound and into the fish? Couldn’t love create that sacred balance? Wouldn’t love dissolve all stress?” Eddy also changes as person because she stays longer and longer with Gus, doing all sorts of things together, eventually marrying Gus.
After Grandpa died, my dad picked up where Grandpa left off. We had a pontoon, and Dad took my brothers and me fishing whenever we had the chance. To this day, I still love fishing just as much as I had on my first fishing trip with my grandpa. Many people enjoy hobbies that are relaxing and peaceful, and others prefer exhilarating activities that never have a dull moment. I enjoy fishing because it has some of both.

Cousins, Lucy Hooray for Fish Age:3 (Toddlers) Hooray for Fish is about a little fish going around the ocean describing his friends. The reason I like this book is because of how bright the illustrations and how you can create a lesson plan based on the length, patterns and different types of fishes. Children will enjoy the book also because you can create a fun song to it. Colandro, Lucille There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell! Age:4
Hemingway re-emphasizes this in the last line of the story, when Bill takes a sandwich and looks at the fishing rods. While Nick is caught up in the moment and sad about what he did, Bill, representing Nick's life, is not moved. The End of Something is a simple story about two youngsters breaking up.

We had met at her parent’s New Years Eve party, which I had reluctantly gone to with Mum and Dad, presuming it would be a bunch of old people getting loose. But to my surprise, I had seen Luke, who I had met at the beach briefly a few days earlier, and he had introduced me to Maddie and Seth. The four of us had become friends almost immediately; Luke and I became a couple, his best mate Seth had taught me to surf, and they had all learnt of my ability to see ghosts. Maddie was still fairly quiet and reserved around new people, but had started to loosen up around Holly and Kate. She told me that she had been at school with them since they were all in Grade One, but they had rarely spoken to her.
