"And seeing the snail, which everywhere doth roam, Carrying his own house still, still is at home, Follow--for he is easy paced--this snail, Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail."
-John Donne (1572-1631)

I love seeing the snails out on the trail in early spring. You sometimes have to really watch your step. I've sometimes heard a pop-crunch and kept going, afraid to look down, for fear that I may have crushed one of these wonderful animals.
