This childrens’ story was inspired by a turtle made by my 4-year-old best friend.  The Turtle, who was sent to stay with me, by the sea in South England, soon found himself on an unexpected adventure.  At the end of the story he returns back to his maker having suffered a broken leg.  His new friend from Kathmandu, Turtle 2, accompanies him on the way.

People who saw me snap these shots – or who take the time to read the above rhyme – may well think me a little loopy.  In truth, such activity is a good way to exercise creativity which helps maintain a vivid imagination – the root of innovation.
