What makes the fish even more special is the pond where it is swimming.
The fabulous fish has set me thinking about creativity: about how important it is for each and every one of us human beings to express ourselves creatively. I'm convinced we all have a talent and that there is great joy to be had in exercising and sharing it, however humble we think it may be, and however hard life may be.
It seems wondrous that in the midst of such difficult living, someone has created a beautiful smiling fish. They have created it for joy and for the joy it brings others. They have created it in spite of such difficulty. I find it inspiring.
Such creativity has ripple effects that we can hardly imagine. At the moment someone very dear to us is recovering in hospital. She it was, looking through Andrew's photographs, that really drew my attention to the fabulous fish. She loves it.
Who would have thought that a fish drawn on a wall in a derelict building in Havana could make someone in a UK hospital smile.
