After a series of unlikely and fortunate events, a turtle successfully hatches.
The events that enabled the life she has, though no less significant, are now a distant miracle. The priority is getting to the ocean.
Which her senses tell her rest beyond the current ocean of sand.
This pilgrimage is a dangerous one, exposed to animals on the hunt.
However, that doesn’t stop her, onward she must go. The alternative of staying put provides no rosy outlook.
Thanks to comforts of the 21st century, such a stark contrast that the turtle faces rarely occurs to us.
Yet, displayed of bravery, like those displayed by our friend the turtle, are ever present.
