What does the Conch shell say?

I usually get the lion share of my writing done in the winter months.

Even though it's cold outside, I am constantly being drawn to the Sea; at least in my mind that is.

Last week one of my granddaughters, I like to call Sweet Pea, was visiting.  She picked up a Conch shell from my dresser and listened to it.

She told me, "I hear it Granny!"

I smiled and knew exactly what she was saying.  I asked her, "What does the Conch shell say?"

"I don't know."  She gave a big smile.

I told her, "If you listen to me I will take you to the Sea."

She grinned and replied, "Not really Granny just pretend."

"Yes, it's wonderful to pretend and imagine we are there right now."

She then continued to listen to two of my Conch shells, one at each ear and repeated, "If you listen to me I will take you to the Sea."

I smiled with joy she had gotten it!  ;)
