Some Things Are Special.


nov 3rd 008

So what makes this special? A close look will reveal that it’s entirely made of fragile shells.

“Definitely not the kind of thing one could lug back from a hectic trip to Mexico,” I thought admiring its delicacy in a gift shop adjoining the pyramids we’d been visiting.

Imagine my surprise when it appeared on my hall way table a few days after my birthday. Observing my interest (and knowing my practical nature) my son had secretly carried it back despite two delays, and a finally cancelled flight causing a stressful 24 hour stay over in Mexico City.

It is pretty and a nice memento but the thing that touches my heart when I look at it is the love and care it must have taken to get it safely through all that (they didn’t give boxes in the shop.)
