      No one else wants to read about eels? I didn't think I did either but this article was truly excellent. I didn't want it to end!

      Beautifully written. Proves that excellent writing can make any subject compelling. Loved this.

      You had to be quiet to make yourself part of the whole.

      Much like the multi-phased metamorphoses of the subject this article metamorphs into a second act Beautifully.

      Side note: I am currently reading a book called “The Power”. After about 40 pages I was ready for it to move to the next level to keep my interest. Curiously enough, the next level catalyst is the sudden connection to eels. Really into the book more now.

      Fascinating and well written article about the natural beauty and mystery of the "ugly" eel.
