Snail Shell Adventures
Around the same time as I was setting into camper life, I became re-obsessed with snails. The first time in my life I fell in love with snails, I would catch them on the porch of my parents' house and build tiny homes for them in containers I'd dug out of the recycling bin. I even took a few of my snail pets with me to music class one time. I adored those snails!
Fast forward to fall of 2017 when I was settling into camper life and living in a part of Southern California where there were snails everywhere. I found myself extremely drawn to them yet again and was often found on the ground, mesmerized and watching them (totally sober - in case you wondered). I started researching snail energy and 100% connected with snails as one of my spirit animals. They don't feel a need to go anywhere fast and are content to enjoy the journey at their pace. Because they don't reproduce sexually, they embody equal parts of male and female energy. They have their tiny home, their safe place that they bring with them everywhere they go. Snails are a reminder to take what comes our way one deliberate step at a time.
