In praise of slow

Having spent most of the day rushing around yesterday, the day ended with a return to a slower pace...a snail's pace, represented by the mass, but slow, exodus of the shell carrying creatures witnessed at about 10pm last night. Sometimes it is good to slow down, to breathe deeply, to take away the stresses of the day.

I would like to be able to say that your snail picture has soothed me, but relatives of those little blighters in your pic have eaten every single one of my pea plants,so I think perhaps I'll listen to some music instead!
(Very good camera work though!)

Yes, the little bu@4ers managed to scoff our pea plants in the back garden as well. The guys that you see on their night-time excursion live out the front on our very thick skinned phormium. I assume they're off to nibble the grass at night, before coming back to sleep in the day.
