Tortoises

Last weekend the weather finally warmed enough for our pet tortoises to play outside.



As I sat outside reading & watching Sunny and Sandy, I thought about my favorite tortoise quote:

"Turtles have everything a writer needs: tough shells to deal with criticism; soft, sensitive insides; the need to stick their necks out if they want to move forward; and the slow-and-steady patience to keep slogging away, day after day." --Martha Beck, Finding Your Own North Star


I've been collecting turtle figurines on my travels for many years, but none are as charming as the real thing!

  1. I love that quote! (Ditto Martha Beck. She's pretty awesome.) That tortoise looks so happy to be out on the grass!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the quote, Kjerstin. The tortoises do love to go outside to wander and dig :)
