My day of Dona Nobis Pacem opened with the sight of two snails (a big one and a small one) moving slowly along the driveway early this morning. I sat on the ground and looked at them for a long time, marvelling at their peaceful, gliding existence.
I then moved them, not wanting to see them get crushed by the garbage truck, which was due to arrive around then (but never did).
I let them walk on my feet, to impart some of their peace to me.
