cold coffee and contradictions

the bizzare ramblings of an over active mind

As I grieve the loss of someone or something dear to me, I also grieve an aspect of me that inevitably dies with that association. Whether it is the loss of a relationship, a creative project, a job or a longed for dream. The person I was, in relationship to that person or thing also seems to go. Though the loss may be painful, holding on potentially creates more pain.

Moon Crabs have great, big paddles on the end of each of their thick, rather flattened legs.

They can use them to swim if they want, but what they really like to do is use their feet like shovels to bury themselves in sand at the drop of a hat.

Also they use their legs to add a bit of colour to their otherwise drab, sandy appearance. If you got shovels for feet, flaunt it. I guess.
