I was charmed and heartened by these two turtles, the larger one wrapping his arm around the smaller one. Maybe the smaller turtle was having a hard day, and his friend was comforting him.
I never considered that maybe turtles have problems, too, just like humans. And maybe they have friends and confidantes, just like we do.
The more I wander, the more I suspect that we have quite a lot in common with the residents of the natural world. Families, children, friends, responsibilities, and maybe even some hopes and dreams.
Who knows? Perhaps my imagination has carried me away.
But in my heart of hearts, I know that we share so many qualities with all the nature beings.
And I couldn’t ask for better companions…
