I rescue turtles.
To dodge wandering terrapins, I will skid to a stop on the side of the road, often with little to no warning for any motorists behind me. I can only hope these same motorists won’t run over me or the shelled reptile I’m attempting to save.
Lately though, on my morning walks, cars are more easily avoided when I carry turtles from the middle of the road to a safe spot on the opposite shoulder.
This simple gesture of helping other creatures, rescues me as much as the turtles.
