shelling out for a heart

There is a mathmatical formula for the heart shape, but this is not it. This is much more unwieldy than a neat equation. The heart has many meanings, including love, enlightenment, and strength, to name a few, and its shape may have evolved from heart-shaped fig leaves. This is my beach heart of small shells collected from about a yard square sized area of a beach somewhere along the Mediterranean by Tripoli.

The heart turned out quite well. One can see it is a heart!! Lovely shells, by the way. Hugs, M.

I'm sure it was washed away after we left!
