Treading Water

I found this picture over at The Blog of Wistar Watts Murray (I've posted it with permission).

I was originally going to save it for an upcoming series of posts about writing. I thought that this picture would make for a fabulous writing prompt. Anyway, you can look forward to more about becoming a better writer later.

Right now I'm just going to say that things are busy over here. Andy's health is poor, and I need to focus on the tasks at hand.

So, in the mean time you'll have to head on over to Wistar's blog and read the incredible survival story of these three friends. She found them treading water just like this in her pool filter. Wistar herself thought the incident was inspiring enough for her to write a not-so- warm and fuzzy story about it. What would you write?

Anyway, talk about "To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world." I guess that goes for turtles too!
