This made me think of the Native American creation story of the turtle carrying the earth on its back. It's an image to linger over.
Martha, Ah yes, I've heard that story and it is something to ponder. Thank you and have a great weekend.

That stone turtle is so cool. Was it put there just for the turtles?
Ann, yeah it was. They wanted something decorative so the turtles could hang out :D It's pretty cool to see in person.

Violet sky, Exactly, what a great inspirational idea. Thank you
