Seashells by the Seashore
In my last post you saw a wind chime I had made using seashells as one of the elements. While I was working on that wind chime, I could not help but to be saddened. Sad for all that is going on with our Gulf Coast. Will there be seashells to collect on the beach? Will there be a beach we can walk on, that's not contaminated with oil or with chemicals they have used to try to "clean" this mess up. We hear so often about the amount of oil that is escaping from this ruptured well, I wonder how they can tell or is it just a guessing game. How much of what we are told is truthful? How much is "tell them what they want to hear"? The extent of this disaster is so far out of our grasp. We cannot even begin to imagine what will become reality on the other side of this. I know they say every cloud has a silver lining. Well, if there is a silver lining I hope we see it soon.
