Ah, Grasshopper (Day 151)
Hearing about the suicide of Kwai Chang Caine (aka David Carradine, star of the 1970s U.S. television show "Kung Fu,") in Hong Kong today put me in a zenish mood. So I found it necessary to photograph the whelk shell; a personal symbol for the vastness of the universe and the true meaning of life.
Well, not really ... Actually, I was hoping for some wonderful literary quote or religious reference to the whelk for my post today but unbelievably there is absolutely no mention of it on the Internets other then scientific information like the fact that it is a carnivore ... who'd have guessed? Check it out; kind of surprised me.
Update (2009-06-05): Looks like it wasn't suicide at all ... even more tragic ...
