New Beginning


i wrote of my 'new beginning' yesterday, and guess what greeted me this morning? butterfly emerging from it's pupa! wow! too cool! it was the most beautiful sight ever!

deprived from it's natural state for metamorphosis on leafy plants, the caterpillar (now the butterfly) rooted itself on our backyard barbedwire. patiently waiting... transforming itself to this magnificent orange wonder.

i take it as a good sign.

Beginning

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

  1. I can't believe you took that picture of the butterfly. Not that I think you are not capable or something, but it looks so....Professional!

    Wow! I love it. Very amazing picture.

  3. I was kind of figuring out that you two were connected , but wasn't sure if you were married or not. You 2 must make a great couple. And how handy to have his expertise around. He does great work, as you can tell, I'm an admirer.
