According to the tradition if you put a conch close to the ear you can hear the sea surfing. The shell-fish and snails are misterious creatures that keep the memory of the Begining that happened in the lap of the Mother Water. We share with them the same air, water and land of the Planet. If we respect and protect them, we respect and protect ourselves as the swinging spiral in the shell is a galactic swinging of the Universe that pulsates in our genetic heredity as well. Could it be the heart of the sky hiding on the bottom of the sea.
 
 
A Shell

A shell has been brought to me.

The sea from the map sings in it
My heart is filling up with water
With fish
Made of shadow and silver.

A shell has been brought to me.

F.G. Lorca
