I have a kindred spirit / long distance friend who I love very much and never get to see. She sent me the most loving package and it arrived yesterday, including these gorgeous sun bleached tortoise shell fragments. I feel so lucky that this woman is in my life. It is a very rare and unique thing to be understood so fully by a friend.
Also I get to put my little leftover feathers and pinecones and things in a hand carved bowl by Nick.
