Starfish Poem~ Loren Eiseley

One day an old man was walking along the beach. It was low tide, and the sand was littered with thousands of stranded starfish that the water had carried in and then left behind. The man began walking very carefully so as not to step on any of the beautiful creatures. Since the animals still seemed to be alive, he considered picking some of them up and putting them back in the water, where they could resume their lives.

The man knew the starfish would die if left on the beach's dry sand but he reasoned that he could not possibly help them all, so he chose to do nothing and continued walking.

Soon afterward, the man came upon a small child on the beach who was frantically throwing one starfish after another back into the sea. The old man stopped and asked the child, "What are you doing?"

"I'm saving the starfish," the child replied.

"Why waste your time?... There are so many you can't save them all so what does is matter?" argued the man.

Without hesitation, the child picked up another starfish and tossed the starfish back into the water... "It matters to this one," the child explained.

I came across this poem some time ago and just loved it! I have many friends on facebook who do animal rescue and it reminded me that you can't save every one, but you can make a huge difference to that one.

Dedicated to all those I admire in rescue!

Pendant is a 30 x 40 mm sterling disc I hand stamped . I then added hammering detail at the bottom to simulate the sand and next soldered on a sterling silver starfish. The pendant was then oxidized and hand polished to make the details stand out and give it a weathered look.

The finishing touch is a gorgeous moss aquamarine briolette . Please choose your chain length from the drop down menu at the top.

All components are sterling silver.
