Sand Dollar -

Perhaps most of us have picked up a sand dollar at the beach and been enchanted with the magic of the shape, which gives it its name, since it's shaped like a coin.   Living, they are covered with spines.   We pick up the skeleton and hold it in our hands.  Somehow it does not frighten us like our own skeleton, our bones.  Is it because it is round, circular, whole?

A sea star design centers the sand dollar.  Waves surround.   In the skeleton is a story told.  Is not the same said of our bones, of what remains?
