I come from a family of fishermen, and am consistently exposed to the process of diving, fishing, preparing, eating, and disposing. In my family the daily rituals of life are tangled up in this sustaining practice. Days go by, family issues pile up, overwhelm, and remain unresolved with the changing of the tides. The fishing perpetuates our family bonds, yet the images of the dead fish resurface as a mocking reminder of the persistent unspoken undercurrents that plague the family.
