I grew up listening to folktales. Often, those stories were about the tortoise and how cunning and ‘wise’ these slow creatures are.
Well, my generation did not question those stories like young ones today would because at the end of the stories there were moral lessons clearly spelt out.
One of those stories I remember is Tortoise In The House of Food.
From other stories, it was emphasized that tortoise loves food. Many times in life, when we have the things we needed and love in abundance, they bore us. Food did not bore tortoise. Arts does not bore me.
Food is life. Arts is life.
