This purple shell is from someone who I admire, respect and cherish. She has experienced a love that few do and a pain that most won’t, hopefully. She is my hero and I feel blessed to have known her. She has taught me more than any teacher could. And thankfully, she will continue to teach others.
(I put the shell on a cutting board as there is word play and symbolism there… just in case you have been lucky enough to know this grand person… life is full of beauty and pain and she has shown me the beauty within the pain.)
