Ned surprised me once. Gifting me a necklace made by a Katawba Nation artist. I would like to think the little clay turtle hanging on it was made from clay dug in the bottoms of the land that he grew up wandering around, the land he loved and loved to share. We joked that it was too small to carry elephants but maybe Yertle could begin his climb. Peace on your journey - you'll be missed here.
