I’ve been thinking about my Snail Party. I think I have enough people who will come, we only have room for five chairs around the fish tank so it won’t be a big party.
I’m thinking about what kind of food to have and have picked out a few passages from the book, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey to read from and have a few videos to show if things get too slow. That’s part of having a snail party, I can’t guarantee that the snail will do something interesting, or anything at all.
But the people who will come will understand that. No one expects snail tricks (although I do wonder what they might be).
I still don’t have a date for my snail party, but I’ll figure that out soon enough.
This afternoon the sun came in the window, for just a few minutes, at just the right angle to throw a shadow on Jon’s latest rock sculpture, from the fish swimming by. I was lucky to be there at just the right moment.
The Sound Of A Wild Snail Eating has been made into a movie, you can see the preview here.
