The Turtle Life
What makes me so fond of turtles? Not their witty conversation. Not their glamour. Not their speed or elegant lifestyle or great works of art.
They like to lie in the sun. Loll in the water. Hang out in cool spots by lakes.
They seem to get along with each other. And with ducks.
Most of life's problems just roll off their backs.
They find their own food. They don't bother anybody.
To spend all day hanging out on a log, telling stories, cracking jokes, maybe nuzzling a bit, or cuddling with somebody cute.
You could do worse with your life.
