Slow Time

Yesterday I spoke of relaxing in the moment for a bit to catch your breath. I went to the forest and just cruised around smelling the fresh air. Well, sometimes you don’t need to go far to have a little moment. I hung around the house all day doing odds and ends. Mowed the grass and watered plants. Finally have the chickens contained in a little run so they won’t destroy the winter veggies. After watering, I took a look at the front. I just stopped and stared away. You’d be amazed at what starts to pop out at you if you just stand still long enough.

And I thought it was the perfect moment to go and grab my macro lens. Kneeling down in the wet dirt mud, I came across two different snails marching towards different destinations. They were only a few feet apart, but would most likely never meet. Searching for the best angles, I got close with the lens and captured a few images.

I don’t know, I am not a big fan a slugs nor snails, but when I see these guys up close, I just can’t help but laugh and say something in snail speak that is lethargic at best with a southern accent.  “Hey Herb.  Wha’cha doin?” or something to that effect.  And for all you snail haters out there, we’ll finish up with nice and non slimey.

And remember, take time and smell the…oh how cliche!

See you down the road.
