It used to be that folks could walk down white sandy beaches and pick up a seashell and listen carefully. I've almost forgotten the sound.
Now there seem to be fewer shells. Maybe there are few sea creatures. Maybe there are more ATV vehicles cruising the sands and crushing them. Maybe the are more folks picking them up and making tacky Christmas ornaments with them. But that's not my point.
Blogs are like sea shells. We never know who picks them up or what they hear. For instance, this blog has a place to leave comments. Maybe no one picks up sea shells anymore.
