But his shell—it is bare, it is beautiful. Small, only the size of my thumb, its architecture is perfect, down to the finest detail. Its shape, swelling like a pear in the center, winds in a gentle spiral to the pointed apex. Its color, dull and gold, is whitened by a wash of salt from the sea. Each whorl, each faint knob, each criss-cross vein in its eggshell texture is as clearly defined as on the day of creation. —Anne Morrow Lindberg fromGift From the Sea
