A Moment In A Turtle's Life

Postby Dunce » Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:16 am

From the perspective of the turtle:

There once was a turtle that tried to climb a hill. As hard as he tried, he could not go as fast as he wanted to. He decided that his shell was weighing him down. He took the shell off, but was too cautious because he was exposed. Too cautious that the turtle couldn't make himself go any faster than when he had his shell on.

The turtle has been at this hill climb for a while now, taking breaks when he is tired. When he stops he thinks about the top of the hill, and what new life is waiting there for him. Time passes quickly when he thinks, so he keeps his breaks to a minimum. After a time, he has finally gotten close to the top. The turtle can see his goal, so close that he can almost reach out and touch it.

This gives him confidence. He is finally able to run faster without his shell, and has made it to the top. But to his surprise, there wasn't anything there. Nothing. Just a empty hill top with some scattered trees. The turtle turns around and looks down the hill at the progress he has made.

"It's a long way down from here."

Sounds like life. If you make it to the top, there really isn't anything there that you couldn't have found anywhere else. Did you just make this up?

It's based on an experience I had.
