This week several snails came gliding through the letterbox.

GLIDE – to move smoothly and continuously along, as if without effort or resistance. 

Although these snails came gliding through my letterbox, I am by no means implying that they came as easy as the word glide suggests.

The journey of each snail is one of significance.  I am not sure this completely makes sense but hopefully the snails will help explain –   they each have a story to tell.

Thank you from the bottom of my shell for sending a snail in the mail. – I hope that each snail continues to act as a puzzle piece and can spread sillyness, thoughtfullness and a way to help us glide!

Here they are!…..

This chap came from Berlin via Devon and is by the super talented illustrator Jayde Perkin. Eine Schnecke looks like he has a lot of character, just like the people that Jayde illustrates.

This bright delight is by Ritamae a lovely lady that I used to go to school with.  A rainbow came through the letterbox with this snail!

These chaps were gathered by Bakewell Hearts a fellow snail lover that I follow on Instagram. She makes wool Batts which are rather whimsical and snail like!

This is Bob, painted by Kate Murray, an illustrator and writer – ‘writing her way out of dyslexia’. He hasn’t made his trip to the mailbox just yet as Kate is waiting to back him, (all part of his journey!)
