Butterflies. Who doesn’t love butterflies. They are a wonder.
When I sit and think how a caterpillar can make a cocoon and in so many days later, emerge into a whole different species, I know that there is a lesson here about life. I can’t even fathom how such a thing can happen, but I don’t want it really explained to me either. I believe there is truly something out there bigger than myself, and it’s more complicated than I could even imagine. And it makes me feel good, not scared.
Also, when I was growing up, I saw many Disney movies, and I truly believed if you were a beautiful person (such as the characters Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White) then blue birds and butterflies would flit around you, even land upon your hand-and not fly away as soon as they saw you. Oh, well. Guess I wasn’t one of those “beautiful” people!
Anyway, this illustration is for the “remarkable” butterfly. 🙂
