Sometimes you see an image that makes your heart leap. Then you discover something else about it which makes your heart sing. On this occasion this butterfly was made and the photo taken by my childhood friend Melanie McConville, who is one of those people in my life to whom Facebook has made my reconnection possible. When I saw this picture on her wall this morning I fell in love with its beauty and simplicity – but its theme also resonated very strongly with me.
Butterfly words are all too delicate. We capture them and pin them carefully in our journals, preserving as much as possible of their vibrancy, so that they can continue to inspire us, even without flight.
Butterfly words. Flights of fancy. So beautiful, simple and precious.
