So much to appreciate in this piece, Prue. Loved the flow of thought, the attention to detail, waves of experience moving in an out. Always ready to sample a new word, and 'sonder' is delicious as is Mike's Substack. Finally, thank you for sharing Chicken Scratch! What a delightful surprise. As a lifelong shell seeker, I share your love of discovery.

Wonderful read! I would love to see what your terrier looks like! (I have a Border Terrier-ist of my own haha!) And, had to look up "fossick" and in future, will use as much as possible ...

Thank you and cheers xo
