This comic, recently sent my way by a good friend and former Tricycle intern, seemed worth sharing. I appreciate the message and the turtle instantly reminded me of a passage from David Loy's The World is Made of Stories, recently reviewed by Alan Senuake for Tricycle.
From The World is Made of Stories:
According to a Hindu myth, the world is upheld by the great elephant Maha Pudma, who is in turn supported by the great tortoise Chukwa.
An Englishman asked a Hindu sage what the great tortoise rests upon.
"Another turtle," was the reply.
And what supports that turtle?
"Ah, Sahib, after that it's turtles all the way down."
