Coming Out of Your Shell

Turtle

This drawing is based on a poem I wrote several years ago.  I owned a couple of turtles as pets growing up.  They’re actually a lot more entertaining than you think.  Especially when one gets loose under your sister’s bed 😉  I don’t think they’re meant to be pets, though.  They’re better off in the wild.  Still, I’ll always think fondly of mine.  They are a great symbol of both longevity and, surprisingly, strength.  I encourage each of you to take a step out of your shell today and do something you wouldn’t normally do but secretly always wanted to…

    I like it! One of my students gave me a painted turtle last year; it is our class pet this year. She is a riot…turtles are interesting creatures indeed.

    What’s her name? I named my first turtle Tiny Tim, but when I took him to the vet I discovered he was a she! So I renamed her Tiny Timara 😉
