  1. Thanks for your poem in your comment on my blog 🙂

    The turtle’s wisdom.. Yes, I feel like that too. And also, the wisdom of my heart/soul..

    Have a nice weekend 🙂

  2. That’s brilliant! That block print is superb – looks a lot like an eraser carving – power to the turtle-child. I bet that student sees the most wonderful things and you encourage them to create – that is awesome. 🙂

  4. Oh wow, I love the mystical yet ‘earthy’ photo and haiku! Great!!!
