There is a folk story about a sea turtle in Japan.
A fisherman, Taro, one day saved a Sea Turtle from a group of naughty children and released it back to the sea.
Some time after, a turtle appeared before Taro, thanked him for saving its life, and wished to invite him to visit an underwater paradise. Turtle took Taro on its back, and it turns into a beautiful woman as they arrived at the paradise. Taro spent some time at the paradise, which was all about pleasure and luxury, however he eventually asked the woman if she would take him back to the shore; that he needed to go home. She gave Taro a box of gift, and made Taro promise never to open the box.
Upon return, Taro realises that he had been gone for hundreds of years and he no longer knew a person in his old fishing village. He desperately looked for any familiarity, and finally, could not resist opening the box . When he opened to look inside the box, all it came out was smoke. And the smoke turned Taro into a very old man.
It feels as though the story is filled with messages. What is it about the paradise, the home, the gift, the good deed, you, the reward, and life?
I remember having to answer a question – what should Taro have done? I do not know if there is one correct answer to this question. But it certainly gives a lot to think about.
San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge has a residential group of approximately 60 protected Eastern Pacific Green Sea Turtles. No one knows how they got here, but it is assumed they were caught many decades ago in Mexico, brought to the bay alive, and escaped from fishing pens, prior to being slaughtered. They settled successfully in the bay due to waters that are artificially warmed by nearby industry.
This is the only area on the west coast of the US where green sea turtles are known to congregate and thrive.
These turtles are an endangered species due to habitat destruction, illegal poaching, inadvertent fish netting, boat strikes, and plastic ingestion.
San Diego Bay Wildlife Refuge is one of the few safe sanctuaries for these peaceful and VERY large turtles. The largest turtle ever measured here weighed 530 lbs, which is the largest known green turtle in the Eastern Pacific.

For the World Peace a Day. Blessed are those who make peace. They will be called God’s children. [Matthew 5:9 (GW)] While walking in the Botanic Gardens, I noticed a pole similar to one I’d seen at the city park. On each of its sides, the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” are written in...

We knew he’d been living in the front yard for a while.
What we didn’t know was that he was munching on the tomatoes, leaving them on the vine.
Then, he got sloppy.
He left seed drippings around the outside of the pots.
Busted. In broad daylight.
Like most of us who grew up with Alvin and those adorable cartoon chipmunks, I was always delighted to see them. Until now.
He was eating them green. By the time we caught him, 10-12 tomatoes were ruined.
We had just come to terms with the rabbits and squirrels in our yard.
But this one was bold. We caught him mid-meal.
We tried blocking the entrance to his abode. He just dug out another hole.
Maybe we could devise a trap, and relocate him to the woods ?
And then, a simple suggestion.
“Maybe they are just hungry…try feeding them something, like…
