A simple school of fish … but nothing is simple, is it? The life of a sea creature is as complex and magnificent as any other life. Are we as important as we think we are? To nature we are not; but it doesn’t make us any less magnificent. Will someone look at our skeleton one day and wonder who we were? What do skeletons make us think about? That we are not long here at all – life passes in a heartbeat, but that heartbeat is an infinity of experience and magic. Perhaps that is where the word “imagination” comes from. The Seas tickle our fancies with questions like these, and the skeletons are shadows speaking ghostly volumes … but about life, not death.
