We went snorkeling today at Po’olenalena (Hawaiian names are great) and got to swim with some sea turtles. There’s something very stately and wise about a sea turtle. They just seem to know things that the ready of us can only wonder about. Why is that? They’re just turtles. As far as I can tell, they lay around the bottom of the ocean all day and lay eggs occasionally. But they’ve figured out how to make our seem like they’re tapped into the deep mysteries of life in a way that the ready of us are missing out on. (They’re a bit like theologians that way.)
Of course, what do I know? Maybe they are smarter than I am. It’s unlikely that a sea turtle would be dumb enough to lock itself out of its condo – twice.
