I have always related to the turtle. It is a lot like me. If I didn’t know any better (and I don’t), I would say that the turtle is the agoraphobic of the reptile world. After all, doesn’t he like to hide in his shell — his home — a lot?
Perhaps the turtle is more like the vacationer, traveling around in his RV, taking his home with him wherever he goes — such a comforting thought.
I don’t know how many people are fans of the turtle. Perhaps I’ll start a movement. And though he may not be furry and cuddly like a lot of creatures, there are a few things you cannot deny: the turtle gets the job done, slow and steady wins the race, the turtle is one of the oldest creatures on our planet, surviving from prehistoric time.
I consider myself lucky to be just like the turtle. I am a survivor!
