For the visually challenged reader, the image shows an older man sitting on a bench by a park. There is a trolley bag behind him. He is playing a stringed instrument and has a collection bag by his feet.He didn’t quite know how he’d got here. He had made a wish, and now here he was.
His surroundings were totally unfamiliar, the only things he recognised being his trolley,
basket, bow and handmade instrument.
He sat bemused and confused, wondering what was going to happen next.
After several minutes, it was obvious that nothing was, and the two thick threads, one attached to his trolley, and the other caressing his bow as if encouraging him to play, disappeared.
He smiled and understood.
No more was he a puppet playing someone else’s tune. Now he was free and raising his bow to tenderly stroke the strings of his instrument, the strains of his gentle melody echoed round the park.
