Having grown up at Southern California beaches,
constantly exploring the tide pools, I immediately connected to that aspect of the mussels and barnacles. Often I have used the phrase "I re-invent myself" when talking with people about how I cope with new assignments & moves. After looking at your work I realized it's not so much a re-invention, because I don't really change, it's more of finding a different framework in which to exist, finding a new shell to wear. A more appropos metaphor, thanks.
