Despite the fact that all available surfaces in our house already seem to have collected their alottment of shells, stones, sticks and acorns, we continue to bring in "treasures." This little bit of bird shell was irresistable to both Mariam and I, and there was clearly no question that it had to come inside.
We found the shell on the walk in front of the house, at the base of a tree where I will now admit, I did see a number of robins hanging around this spring. Now we know what they were up to! It is always nice to have a reminder of the fact that nature continues to be busy with Very Important Things while we are inside the house fussing about unloading the dishwasher and getting the small person to bed on time.
You know, perspective.
