The season is beginning when I shape shift from a landlubber to that creature that best suits my aquatic and sunny personality – a mermaid. And what better way to greet the season with the magic currently sweeping our eastern shoreboard? The Horseshoe Crab Spawn.
Already, I am finding spawning pairs on the beaches and am reminded that this ritual has been occurring for hundreds of millions of years, a breadth of time in which we appear to be but a speck. A number of major magazines are finally researching the industry too, which my next novel is about. Glad to see The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly and The Huffington Post looking at this amazing creatures who have changed our lives and our medical industry.
