THE ANIMAL FOREST WAS ALL STIRRED UP, SINCE IT WAS COLD. Not just a bit cold. Very cold. The dragonfly gasped for breath because she was stiff from the cold. The sheep was always sensitive to her lack of breath and he was happy that this time, it was not caused by emotions, so he could help by offering the dragonfly a little space between the lush woollen curls of his fur. Also winter was no big deal to him. Just leave your curls a little longer and the cold will not bother you. Sometimes it seemed to him that life would be complicated if you were not a sheep, but then again, he did not quite know what complicated was, so he did not really bother.

THE PACK DONKEY PLODDED THROUGH THE FOREST. He never was one of the swiftest but right now, he seemed slower than ever. Each year, when the dark days of winter were coming, the pack donkey disguised himself. He wore a red suit, trimmed with white fur, a buckled black belt and he even put a matching hat on his head.

In the meantime, you can browse through the posts on my websites and read all there is in full!The tortoise had a question, and as with everything, it took him a long time, that question. Especially because it was not an easy question. He looked at it from all sides and that is not quickly done for a tortoise when walking long distances is involved. Added to this, the tortoise was used to doing things thoroughly. Over and over again, he approached the question from afar, taking a new route towards it, to see, if from another angle, there were answers to be found that were even more beautiful. Because answers could be lying around for the taking, but the tortoise searched for the one answer that, at the same time, transcended and deepened all the others.
