Why the ambitious title? Well, I finally happened upon my first fossil. We were hiking a grassland area near a Chadron formation (from 37-34 million years ago) at Badlands National Park. Springtime rain had eroded the slopes of the formation, carrying down previously buried fossil remains. This is of a turtle shell. The find reminded me of the slowness of time yet signified the animal's persistence today. I heard echoes of the tale, "Turtle and the Hare". I sure hope that's true for artists, as well - Persistence + Time = Significance.
