So who is this Turtle ?
Someone who adopted the slow movement long before it was fashionable. Right from birth , earning her the childhood nickname of The Little Turtle .
She always had way more fun watching others from a little distance . Maybe that is why she became so interested in books (you are living the story and yet not really there) .
This Turtle likes to read , you might even call her curious. She is in love with words and reads books , magazines , newspapers , packets of cereal or toothpaste , street signs (you get the picture) .
You can’t imagine the thrill when she found out this blog thing where you have a book , a magazine, a travel brochure, a glimpse of how other people live in faraway lands all wrapped up into one.
Music is her other passion . Very rarely will you find The Turtle not listening or humming to it. Depending on the mood of the moment – which is just about the only thing changing fast on this girl – she will listen to classic, pop, rock, reggae, samba, house, techno, funk, you name it . As long as she likes it she is singing and sometimes even dancing to it.
Best place to be ? Swimming on a beach, which she doesn’t get to enjoy often, because oh the moves one has to go through to get there.
Absolutely hates : dust, but has to live with it because loves her windows open ; dog hair everywhere, but loves her two rescued dogs and an adopted one. And can’t stand the smell of food cooking , doesn’t mind eating it though.
The Turtle wants to learn how to write, how to come out of her shell more often, and how to use her laptop. So she got this crazy idea on her head to dive deep into the blogging world and learn all three at the same time.
This just might be an interesting journey to follow , albeit a very slow moving one.
Welcome to The Turtleway .
Oh! you wanted more details ? But The Turtle is very very shy . Better summon her crazy little sister The Otter to help and let you know that The Turtle is a she , mom of three , going into the second half of her life (or second third if she were really a turtle – they are supposed to live to around 150) , and English is not her first language .
Enjoy the slow , and Turtle Hugs 🙂
