|David Attenborough and the sea dragon fossil|
As David Attenborough attests, there is nothing more fascinating than an old fossil! Why? Because an old fossil tells you about all that went before it and what it was in all its grandeur. He is looking at the old fossil of a sea dragon and imagining upon its fossilised image, the reality which was there before. I am living in an apparent world of fossils, I am one fossil and he is another but look more carefully and what do we old fossils tell you? Just as Luke Skywalker lives on, so, in the fossil, the sea dragon lives in the fossil. In every fossil, there lurks a reality and in the same way, in Grandpa there lives Luke Skywalker, a fossilised perfect image of what is really there. Look at your own Grandpa, your own familiar person and envisage the real person lying there, he or she may surprise you! But you are the one with the power, you are the one who can call him or her forth. I can tell you it is worth it for the sake of the Skywalker alone.
