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.
