Have you ever lost important notes to the elements or to a hungry rhinoceros?
Raw and primitive. Alaska and the Sierra Nevada Mountains are settings rich with story possibilities. SS: What if the battery in my alarm clock died and I never woke up? Could I write an entire novel while asleep? I scribbled that note on a matchbook cover, er, somewhere. That would make for an intriguing experiment. Please let me know if you ever try it. Do you have any new research excursions planned? Ones you plan to maintain consciousness for? Ideas, like fast-food mustard packets, are easily stolen.
I was under the impression that those mustard packets were complimentary. I have so much to learn about Earth customs.

And because you obviously enjoy camping, how about campfire activities? Cribbage in a rocking chair strapped to the wing of a biplane at 20, feet.
Have you experienced it often?
How do you coax the slumberous amphibians out? SS: Whisper sweet words where their ears should be and a frog will follow you anywhere. As everyone knows the eardrum of a frog is a large exposed disk behind its eye on each side of its head. I have a similar physical trait, though I am not a frog. You may be aware that I frequently bemoan the lack of gastropods in Earth literature and that I encourage the authors I interview to consider including gastropods in their future books.
In your case, no such exhortation is necessary. It includes entries about sea slugs and snails. It also introduced me to a gastropod I was previously unfamiliar with, the limpet. Thank you. Is photography an extension of your writing or is writing an extension of your photography?

SS: Early in my career as a travel writer I discovered my articles were more marketable if I could provide images. Since I was already a hobbyist in that art form I thought, Why not? Many years passed before I decided to try photo-illustrated books for children.
Emotions can even be captured visually with inanimate objects. Do you have any suggestions for what might be causing his inability to produce a decent photograph?

I did and my original doubts were confirmed. I tend to get distracted by this topic. SS: No comprendo.

I liked how the turtle outsmarted the man who was planning on making her into turtle soup. I wish the overall message was a little more humane--such as the kids convincing their dad not to try and capture the turtle again after they befriended her. I'm very depressed so I tend to look for stories on Cool Animals Concepts. Bear with me. I wanted to see if there were ebooks on dancing turtles, so I found this. A folk tale about a dancing turtle who plays music. And by doing so, escapes the terrible fate of being food. Turtles are as far as folk tales go, musical friends, not food.

I'm completely overthinking the ethical implications of saving yourself through music and art, so I'm just going to say it's totally OK to save yourself through a little bit of guile and music and art.

The turtle escapes and the story ends with the father of the children going out to hunt for the turtle again. It opens in the Brazilian rain forest as a flute-playing turtle is captured by a hungry man. Locked in a cage, Turtle tells the man's children that she will dance for them if they let her out. Turtle twirls, bobs, weaves, jumps, and crawls. Then pretending to be hot and tired, she escapes. The quality of the artwork isn't up to that of the text. However, the paintings, dominated by shades of green and punctuated by reds, oranges, and yellows, capture the diverse flora and fauna people included of theregion.
This lighthearted tale ends on an understanding note as theboy and girl try--but fail--to pass off a painted rock as their missing dinner.
