    As they picked up a shell lying on the sand, it's absolutely true that every shell began somewhere and crossed a unique path with different goals and driven by different motivations.
    In some way, it actually is. It is, indeed, about Shell, and about Mutter. And even though "wisdom" is perhaps a bit of an overstatement, it is expected that whoever reads this blog doesn't leave it *less* wise, so the word applies to a certain degree. Evidently, the Shell in question is composed of bits and bytes; its protection is more about the complexities of a kernel and command lines than sea predators; and the Mutter is actually more about compositing the desktop than barely audible uttering.

    For a long time, the development of Mutter and GNOME Shell was surrounded by silence. This blog is a humble attempt to bring those two critical components of the GNOME desktop to the spotlight, even if only a tiny bit more.
    
    It would be naive to say that posts will be published in a consistent frequency, but the initial goal is monthly development reports, and eventual one-shot deep dives into various bits and pieces of these two components.
    
    So fasten your seatbelts, and enjoy the ride.

  • Wouldn't it make the next sentence, as they picked up a shell lying on the sand, weird and disconnected?

  • let me reread it to and read it outloud too

  • Maybe make the "Every shell has a story" a Centered Title instead of part of the first sentence? like this:

    Every shell has a story
