Snail's pace

Nature is so incredibly beautiful

I spotted this snail in the raised bird bath
while dealing with the little bird 
 a few days ago.

It takes my breath away.

'The velocity of the ill,
however, is like that of the snail.'
—Emily Dickinson, in a letter
to Charles H. Clark, April 1886

Quoted in Elisabeth Tova Bailey's 'The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating'. If you haven't read it, I'd recommend it. :)
