An 11.11.11 Thank You

Please click to enlarge

This shell will always have a special place on our bookshelves. It's a memento from my Dad's Basic Training days at Parris Island.

He wrote the date on the shell. I can see him walking the shoreline of Port Royal Sound and finding this treasure as he contemplated his next steps into WWII.

I've been wanting to preserve the shell as a journal sketch for the longest time. I can't think of a better day... a more special day than today... to honor it forever :)


  1. Hi Pam ... what a nice way to take a deep breath and think about Veteran's Day. Lovely sketch.

  2. Hi Elva, Thank you! I really felt connected.


We'd love your feedback...please share your thoughts!
