Nila Book Series by Daniel G Linsteadt

The Nila Series

The Nila story was created out of my love for the ocean and my unending questions of why do I exist, and what is the purpose of life.

Battered Seashell Battered Seashell

After a winter storm, my wife and I walked the Coronado Island beach. The summer accumulation of sand had been stripped away by the aggressive waves and the sand dollars with it. Left behind was an exposed pile of rocks, which required work to traverse. Scattered about on these jagged stones were large pink and opalescent spiral shells. Surprisingly, many of them were only cracked and chipped, and the seagulls had yet to discover the awaiting treasure. Life still stirred within each intact shell as I touched the exposed flesh. As I sat rubbing the shell with my thumb and gazing out over the rough, gray water, I pondered the meaning of life and how it might be to live in the ocean. Playing with conjured up images in my head, while adding a few of my own potent life experiences—Nila entered into my life.
