Turtle Two

Published by kappello on

Beautiful piece of art. I love sharing when I come across lovely art.



It also made me think and reflect.  The turtle is I think like people in some ways.  We show the world a hard tough exterior and are very slow to show the true self because we fear the true self means weakness, means non-acceptance etc…. We take our time in opening up, or even in seeing  friendship true,  true love right in front of us, in accepting it, in pursuing our dreams.  We take time, too much time and so the adage of “you snooze, you loose” becomes the banner and pattern of one’s life.  in some areas, yet in others we throw all caution to the wind, but not necessarily in wise ways, only later, much later do we realize all of this.  Better late than never is another saying and it’s true.  The slow and steady wins the race to some extent has validity, but not if it is out of fear or any negative emotions driving it.  

Kudos to the artist for the beauty of the art, but also inspiring me to think and reflect through this piece of art.



Born in New Jersey, August 1965, this Italian-American has always had a great interest in music, particularly the Oldies, Country and Ethnic music, including Irish.

We are all blessed to have Katherine’s strength, wisdom, and words to write “Pray For Me Tonight’
