What is it about butterflies that attracts us? Is it their bright colors? Is it the fact that they fly and maybe we secretly would like to do that, too? Or is it the metamorphosis that occurs as they come into being?
For me, the answer is all of the above. What I seem to identify with the most is that metamorphosis, that change, the blossoming and spreading of the wings in order to fly.
I’m still enjoying the new perspective on life as I look for the textures, shapes, and colors in my everyday life, amazed at what I see now that has been so easily overlooked before.
All it took was that question, “What is the color of your day?” In this moment, it is red. The red of this little flower. And it is green, as in those green leaves. And it is black and white with a touch of yellow here and a faint bit of red over there.
My heart is filled with gratitude to be able to witness this.
