An amazing sea creature...the chambered nautilus...and one of my youngest's favorites. One of his prized possessions is the beautiful, and very fragile, nautilus shell he bought in a Maine shell shop a number of years ago. He shares a passion for seashells with his mother; as a child I also collected shells on the beach and bought the really exotic kind at shell shops.
I adore all those little nooks and crannies, perfectly measured spaces, in the nautilus and wonder if they're not so different from the myriad of private spaces in all of us.
