Little dead sea urchins from the bottom of the sea.
I can’t get over how lovely they are. They show the perfection of nature’s graphic design at work.
I wrapped them in tissue paper and said a prayer that they would make it the 17 hours of travel time back to my house. They did.
They are, hands down, better than any t-shirt or other island item that I could buy. But are they not just more stuff? What is it about humans that we like to collect and possess things? Might they not have done more on the sea bed? Should I have left them as a home for some little critter?
