10. Turtles

Every story must begin somewhere. And this one begins on the seaside. Nature loves to hold on to mysteries, as if to disclose them meant she’ll lose a part of herself.

  2. I really enjoyed reading your story of the turtles and I didn’t know that about them following the light. Great the way you bought the story around to us as Christians. Relating the two makes it more real and down to earth I think for many. Thank you for looking at my blog and noting it so I ended up finding you and your words.
