This Glistening Spirit Fish..."

...will be swimming his way tomorrow through
the US postal jet stream
to his new home in Finland and into the art studio of
Elina,
an iATC trading friend.
Within the bright sparkle of his eye
he carries with him the power and strength
of the Finnish sky god Ukko.
Ukko,
like his other mythological sky-god brothers,
Zeus and Thor,
wields control through the use of powerful thunderbolts.
So,
the next time you look up in the sky
and catch a flash of bright light in the corner of your eye,
it just might be the spirit fish of Ukko
swimming about...
keeping order in great sea of the cosmos.

“Do not tell fish stories
where the people know you;
but particularly,
don't tell them where they know the fish.”
~Mark Twain
