Why starfishes? It is inspired by a story written by Loren Eiseley. Many of you might have heard/read about it, but if you have not, we have included the story below :) We hope that it makes a meaningful gift to those who have impacted our lives! . Starfishes also reminded us of seaside! Hence, this collection will not be complete without some sea-related design.
‐------‐---------------‐--- There was a boy walking along a beach. There had just been a storm, and starfish had been scattered along the sands. The boy knew the fish would die, so he began to fling the fish to the sea. But every time he threw a starfish, another would wash ashore. An old man happened along and saw what the child was doing. . He called out, “Boy, what are you doing?” “Saving the starfish!' replied the boy. ”But your attempts are useless, child! Every time you save one, another one returns, often the same one! You can't save them all, so why bother trying?” called the old man. . The boy thought about this for a while, a starfish in his hand; he answered, “Well, it matters to this one."
