Bruce Feiler had it right. About turtles and beholding.
I took a walk with Pi, we beheld a turtle. And two geese. A dozen ducks. Uncountable turtles.
An unplanned pause in my world of worry that lightened my heart, brightened a gray day. Behold the magnificence that is a small moment spent in wonder, of a small creature. Time stopping wonder.
Too much stress, too much pressure, it's a tuffff time. But there they were, 7a.m. and I was dazzled by ducks.
Ballot measure Yes on Prop 2 (confinement of chickens, pigs & veal calves) changed my life. Much of what you see on My Story Tails comes from that change.
