the song of the oyster and the pearl

Once upon a time,  oysters were on the verge of extinction:  the sand churned by the waves gets into their system : a slow but sure death.  the oysters fought back,  slowly but surely:  they secreted a special substance and turned the lethal grain of sand into a  pearl. death replaced by a precious stone.    lethal  sand blowing our way?  what we decide to do with it, is the measure of our worth as …an oyster and a human being.

sandstorms coming?  i listen to the song of the oyster  and begin to create my pearls. the more sand , the more pearls.
