A Snail’s Pace

With that index finger curling fore and aft, he declared, “You’re moving like a snail!”

I considered his statement…for I have observed my share of snails…

…they move in all directions, changing as the terrain changes, feeling their way, stopping only to pull those delicate antennae into safety when approaching a perceived threat. Like a force of nature, they press on…tenacious, moving inexorably towards their mysterious goal…

I smiled at the gentleman and said, “Thank you!”
