Day 142 – Steady AS She Goes

There are many reasons to love the snail.

Their slow, stead pace is one to be admired. Many days I’d be much better off if I would slow down, take in my surroundings – breathe – and smile. I feel better already!

Snails carry their homes upon their backs which is where all of us feel most secure – how lucky for them that they can retreat back into that safety and warmth no matter where they’ve traveled.

Wonderful symbols of slow yet steady progress. Whatever you’re working towards – a diagnosis, a manuscript, or a 5k walk for charity – slow and steady AS she goes and you’ll win your race.

Until tomorrow.


Day 142 was made in graphite, acrylic, and watercolor.

Why Pink? Well because Giant Pink Snails now live in Coral Gables!

There’s a blog for thatSnails!
