Being Brave with Bruce: Living the Good Green Life

“Good life” means different things to different beings. If you are a large shell-less being, perhaps living a good life means you survived another day on the lam from a certain set of highly infectious microscopic particles. Or it might mean you return home that night to discover your (wine) glass is half-full yet again.Continue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: Living the Good Green Life”

Being Brave With Bruce: A Time to Step Up

There are days when it is a good day to hide. Such as the day you wake up to (are woken up by) the shrieks of the hungry hawk babies in the tree next door as they scream for their breakfast. Which, in turn, attracts the feline from one house over – a furry, fangedContinue reading “Being Brave With Bruce: A Time to Step Up”

Life can be very hard at times. Oh so very hard. But then there are those pivotal moments in every being’s life that make all the hardships and scary-ness (a technical term) and challenges worth it.

But even so,Continue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: Box Turtle Selfies”

Being Brave with Bruce: the Story of How a Box Turtle Found Home

Pandemics are definitely one of those times when you realize you need each other. But they aren’t the only times. For example, let’s say you are a Texas 3-toed box turtle and you are lost. Somehow, you misplaced your home. Or maybe somebody built a shopping mall on top of it and that is whyContinue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: the Story of How a Box Turtle Found Home”
