i had hoped to come home with a sackful of these from the sand-dollar rich beaches of florida’s gulf coast. instead, our spring break was cut short, as the enormity of the coronavirus crisis began to make itself clear, and my 80-plus year old mother came to terms with the possibility of being caught in a lockdown in her rented townhome in naples. and so, this image now represents an experience lost, rather than dollars gained. we are home and washing our hands frequently. take care of yourselves.
