TEASER, whole fable in book
You can continue reading in my book with fables that is published by BoekScout and can be found in their webshop.
The book is bilingual: Dutch-English and is titled:
HOE HET ZO GEKOMEN IS / HOW IT ALL CAME TO BE
psychologische fabels / psychological fables
*As in all fables, the stories mirror human behaviour. Through the animals’ characters, we actually look at ourselves and our society. The fables are contemplative, yet vivid and quite humorous.*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.
