Happy World Turtle Day (aContinue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: Happy Days”

Being Brave with Bruce: Coming Out of Your Box

You know you’ve won the genetic lottery when you pop out of your small round white escape pod and discover you are wearing a handy “box.” So unlike most beings (aka the less lucky ones), you’ve just traded one cloaking device for another. Anytime something wanders by that looks a little too curious – orContinue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: Coming Out of Your Box”

Being Brave with Bruce: What the World Needs Now

There are times when unfolding events on this small round blue and green planet can feel really stressful. Oh so stressful. The news about, well, basically everything, sounds so grim.

Being Brave with Bruce: Keep Your Ferns Close

When you are small and super-delicious, you can never have too many ferns. Ferns are so friendly. They are so multi-purpose.

And they are very leafyContinue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: Keep Your Ferns Close”

Being Brave with Bruce: When You Need a Friend

We all need rescuing sometimes. For many of us, being rescued isn’t a once-in-a-lifetime need, either. While there is something to be said for having a well-laid plan, this can only take you so far. This is especially the case when, in the eyes of most of your planet-mates, you are exactly the right shapeContinue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: When You Need a Friend”

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.
