Found in real sea turtle territory.

Dear Each and Every One,

In response to Zoe's thoughtful request for a photo, I'm contributing one of a tiny turtle I found on the beach. I never thought I'd have a particular connection to turtles, but I've developed a spiritual connection to them just since we moved from NY to Florida a year and a half ago. I can often be seen screeching to a halt in my car, leaping out and rescuing a turtle who is stuck in the middle of the road, lumbering, in slow motion, in search of water, about to get squashed.

One stormy day on the beach recently, I came upon this tiny turtle which no doubt is being missed by a child somewhere, but there was no one in sight when I snatched up . . .er, adopted the little plastic creature!

With Respect for Turtles (and all living things),

Hey, Sarah,
The turtle family sure is lucky to have you in their corner. Such good work you are doing. Thumbs up!

There is actually a book by a journalist author who speaks about these little plastic bath toys that were released into the ocean in a ship-wreck. They are just now reaching our shores. Maybe you caught one of them! Moby Duck by Donovan Hohn.

Moby Duck!

Hi, Tara,

That's amazing! And delightful, I shall Google that book right now and must read it.

Thank you,

Hello Sarah,

If you could rescue and adopt that lost, lonely, little plastic turtle, I can imagine what your very caring heart will do for a live creature. I admire your respect for all living creatures!



I really do feel that those creatures heal us in various ways. Did you know that dogs have been known to find cancer in their people? That is, they can apparently scent/smell a tumor and can sometimes find it before a doctor can. One woman's dog began to reach up with one paw -- when the woman was sitting down -- and knead an area above one of her breasts. In due course, a tumor was found there. Wow!

Hope all is well with you,

- Sarah

I am good Sarah

I guess there's just so much man can benefit from appreciating and protecting everything that nature represents.
Your writing is stimulating and thank you so much for being there!
