Snails see the beauty in every inch

I have a new little love that has been peaking it's head out from behind the bushes and waving at my heart, trying to get it's attention for some time now. 

It's snails. 

It started with this. 


Snails - The Format

Then I found myself doodling them all over my school notes. 

Then the hippie and I hid one on our website

Now it's taken over into a full love obsession. Oh how I love love obsessions.

Why? I'm not sure. Perhaps because of the lyrics of the song. 

Perhaps because I admire their boldness to spread slime all over the world. 

Perhaps because they can live in pretty much any environment (depending on the snail you're talkin' about) including land, sea, desert. 

Perhaps it's that they carry their home with them, something I hope to do one day.

But whatever the case may be, for your enjoyment:

So maybe I'm a little obsessed. But they make my heart skip a beat like nothing has for a long time. 

Also, while I'm here...

It's hard to choose a favorite album, but this one has been in my CD player almost non-stop for 4 months.
