Frog V

For anyone who ever felt that they were living in two worlds, and surviving! The frog is for you. I have always found the frog to be a fascinating creature. Frogs are survivors, making peace with two worlds. And yet they are so sensitive. Whatever happens to the environment in which a frog population lives will be soon apparent in the frogs themselves. The are a litmus for pollution, poor little frogs. They are so beautiful and come in so many sizes and colours. When they leap, they just leap! Nothing graceful, just a big flop, arms and legs akimbo, flying haphazardly through the air. And sometimes they get a lot of bugs. And sometimes they don't. There are many days when I feel a lot like a frog.
