Did you know Nox, that the snail shell for all its protective qualities - it kees safe the snail's soft and squishy insides - is also extremely vulnerable?

One tiny crack in its hard surface and the snail will die.

You capture some sense of this beautifully here.

Incredibly beautiful and original

no, i did not,

but it just occurred to me
that all shells,
if cracked, would have
a similar effect on that
which they are designated
to protect, no?

thank you, as always,
for your insight and
your kind words.


Noxalio said...

hello Rachel,

yes, they do.

thank you,
it's good o hear from you.


Noxalio said...

hi there amatamari©!!

and thanks, as usual
you are generous with
your compliments.


Rebecca said...

What a wonderful macro. So much detail.

Noxalio said...

oh, thank you kindly Rebecca,

and it's so good
to "see" you over here--

it'd been a while.
