thought for the morning


My son says that if you hum to a snail (periwinkle) on the beach, it will come out of its shell. I like imagining that. Perhaps it could be a large scale performance event: people up and down the coasts humming at one time, and all the snails coming out to listen for one moment of human-mollusk connection... What would we hum?


The Marseillaise?

But wouldn't that incite them? It might make them think of bouillabaisse.

No, no, something soft and romantic. I'm thinking "Close to You" by the Carpenters....
