SHELL SPEAK
Moving Toward Abstraction and Awareness
What hidden force moves us to choose certain shells on the beach?
What shells speak to us more than others… the perfect or the imperfect? the colors or the textures? the smooth hard coolness that feels like, and is, the same make up as our own bones?

Then, how to go deeper with this message from the shells? Do we write a poem of the beauty, of the mystery, of the journey of the creatures that inhabited these homes for a time? And wonder and marvel at the connection with the universe?
