Diversity in the Sand

September 27, 2016
All of these Coquinas coexist together on a small stretch of beach from Longboat Key to Anna Marie Island. Every single one of them is unique. They are all pretty by themselves but collectively they are astonishingly beautiful. Each one contains a characteristic of another. Some have stripes, circles, rays, solid colors or a mixture. But they are all shells. Remnants of life. Reminders to embrace differences and see the bigger picture. Sometimes that takes patience, introspection, noticing subtleties, and appreciating the obscure.
