PHOTO BOOTH: "A Snail's Pace"

Sometimes the day-to-day moves so quickly that I catch myself holding my breath and spinning on the spot. 

Direction and focus lost in the swirl. 

I let myself blame motherhood for pushing me this way and that way. 

And then a snail and a hand meet. Their pace is perfect.

I'm spinning too fast to notice. 

So today, I'm settling down.

Steady. Simple. Silly. Still.
