Clarobotoo Looks Out On the Sea and Contemplates a Life of Adventure

Clarobotoo Looks Out on the Sea


Clarobotoo had been practicing a very long time and felt the urge to get out of the house and see the world. He wanted to keep practicing, though, so he was in a predicament. There is so much music to learn and perform, but there are also so many things to see and do. He stood on his landing pad and looked out on the vast sea. "What should I do?" he thought.
