|Hugo Johnstone-Burt as Fish in Cloudstreet (Year of the Pig?-)|
|Fish Lamb in Cloudstreet (Year of the Dog?-)|
|My copy, cockroach crap and all:-)|
I think I got confused because years ago I saw a stage musical of the book, so I very roughly knew the story, but not the fine details of the story.
Anyway, the main theme of the book is the mystical/spiritual/cosmic aspect of water and life and death.
After I had watched 'Cloudstreet' I randomly listened to a 'Spirit Pig' podcast featuring Dr. Wallace J. Nichols talking about his book 'Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do’.

And just when I thought it wasn't safe to go back into the water, too;-)
|If you've seen 'Cloudstreet' you'll know the player can murder the piano:-)|
I think I'll just stick to walking near the water for now.
