To brave wilderness, I am six, my mom is typing this for me I want to say thank you for teaching me stuff. I love everything you do. How do you get to be so brave? I want to be brave just like you someday but right now I’m not, I watch you and want to do what you do someday. Thank you for helping me be a little braver when I see you do this stuff, it makes me say I’m gonna do that. You are amazing. So thank you for being amazing to me.

The way that first reef squid held its tentacles in a very specific but complex position makes me think it was saying something. Squid: Greetings, strange land creature! Welcome to my domain! Please remember to pick up any food wrappers or loose pieces of plastic before you leave!
