The Daily Shell: Number Twenty-one

 In Inspirational

Nature is a great teacher. The sea life I saw this past summer schooled me in resilience. All of the species I observed knew how to protect themselves. Horseshoe crabs wore an amor-like shell to shield their soft underbelly. Coquinas closed tightly when I interrupted their dive into the wet sand. Miniature sand crabs withdrew their squirming legs under their hard outer layer and played dead in my hands. So clever.

Ocean Whisper: I arch my back to encourage the negativity to roll off when I need to; some days I wish I had a shell.
