A fortunate destiny

"It is perhaps a more fortunate destiny to have a taste for collecting shells than to be born a millionaire."

Robert Louis Stevenson - Scottish author (1850 - 1894)

(Deb Baker, one of my blog followers in Michigan forwarded the lovely quotation above to me! Thanks, Deb!)

This shell reminds me of the old Chinese fairytale "White Wave" -- the story of a goddess who lives in a shell such as this one & comes out the save the fortune of a poor farmer.
