"O see, how brightly the universe gleams!
There is a radiance on everything;
you drift with me on a cold sea,
but a special warmth flickers from you to me, from me to you."

tiny treasures from the sea

I'm learning how to use my new (used) Canon 20D.  The pink shells I found near Pacific City on the Oregon Coast, at Whalen Island County Park.  The teeny pink shells are everywhere on that beach.  The agates I found at Road's End beach in Lincoln City.  There, agate hunting can be a serious endeavor.  I asked one man, on his hands and knees near the waves, why he was searching for agates.  He said, "it's cheaper than therapy."
I have all kinds of treasures from our travels on display throughout our house, mostly on our windowsills and in blue Ball jars.  I've always loved tiny treasures--when I was a kid, I was always bringing home little rocks and shells and bits of beach glass.  Even now, sometimes I'll put my hand in my coat pocket and discover an agate I slipped in there on some trip or another!
