A Mermaid’s “Tale”

It seems that as soon as the calendar turns to a new year, I begin looking forward to spring.

Spring means eventually the (several feet of) snow will melt and I will be able to find my way back to the beach again.

Since I can’t get to the beach to search for sea glass, I spend time going through the collection I have.  In one vase are my best finds:  pink, teal, seafoam, lavender, and red.  In another, pieces of softened tile and pottery.

A Christmas ornament of a mermaid rests in the one with the pottery, year-round.  While I was sifting through the pieces yesterday, I noticed that the mermaid tail, through the glass, seemed to be underwater.
