No warthog left behind.
Chloe will catch up. It’s a lot to take in at once.
Chloe has specific fears.
Who will lose their mind first — The Warthog or Chloe?
The Warthog will give you his back story whether you want it or not. But it is a good story, if somewhat embellished.
The Warthog has a story to tell.
Sometimes one’s choice of reading material says a lot about one’s state of mind.
And so begins a new story of Wanderlost — “Long Way From Home.”
At the time I wrote this I was fascinated by the reproductive cycle of sea turtles, who journey thousands of leagues through the ocean to drop their eggs in certain spots where they are most vulnerable to predators. We can’t really talk about “evolutionary advantage” here. It’s just dumb luck they’ve survived millions of years. It’s pretty bad luck that human expansion and technology — not to mention garbage — have encroached upon their habitats and contributed to their decline. If you’re feeling generous, the World Wildlife Fund has a donation page to help preserve sea turtles.
And this concludes the “Out to Sea” story line. Tune in Thursday for the start of “Long Way from Home.”
Chloe resolves the conflict in her own way.
