What’s Your Butterfly Effect? – Short Version
“…….Shall I tell some that are written in rhyme all about bees, butterflies and worms, and the natural magic of the garden? Shall I tell a fairy story and summon the magic of the imagination?

It’s all magic……” https://ontheplumtree.wordpress.com/2014/05/20/dr-nanaplum-story-corner-which-story-shall-i-tell-its-all-magic/
“The Hare and the Tortoise
One day a hare met a tortoise. The hare said to the tortoise, “Why do you move so slowly? Why don’t you try to run like other animals?” Thus the hare laughed at the tortoise for his slow pace.
The tortoise said, “I know that I cannot run. But I can beat you in a race.”
“Then come, let us run a race at once,” said the hare.
The race began. The hare ran very swiftly for some time. Then he stopped and looked back. He saw that the tortoise was far behind. So he said, “Now I can take rest. Let the tortoise come here and then I shall run again.”
So the hare sat under a tree to take rest. But soon he fell asleep.
The tortoise went on slowly but steadily. He did not stop for a moment.
Suddenly the hare woke up. He saw the tortoise very near the goal. He ran as fast as he could. But alas! The tortoise had already reached the goal.”
