 i “Old man turtle ambles along the deerpath, seeking breakfast. A strand of wild rice grass dangles from his pincer-like beak. His small wise droll red rimmed eyes look from side to side, bright and wary and shrewd. He walks on long leathery legs, fully extended from the walnut-colored hump of shell, the ventral skid-plate clear of the sand. His shell is big as a cowboy’s skillet, a gardener’s spade, a Tommy’s helmet. He is 145 years old – middle aged. He has fathered many children and will beget more. Maybe.” -Edward Abbey in
 Hayduke Lives!
 “In the beginning there was a great tortoise who supported the world. Upon him all ultimately rests. He is all wise and can outrun the hare. In the night his eyes carry him to unknown places.” -William Carlos Williams
