I donned my kimono, tucked Belle under my arm and walked out into the cool darkness to take the garbage out.  I noticed a few snails crawling near the door on our way back inside.  I took this as an opportunity to introduce Belle to nature.  I counted three snails and one mammoth spider housed in the potted banana leaf near the door.  I also noticed one empty snail shell.  Belle handed me the empty shell and gave me a long explanation.  Then she crushed and scattered the shell amongst the dirt and trinkets she'd dug out of the plants.
