But lately, well lately, I've been a little fascinated (is that the right word?) by these winged creatures. They keep popping up in everything I create. I think it might boil down to envy.
Just watch a butterfly as it flits about your garden. They are so carefree, light and graceful.
For a girl with her feet firmly on the ground (surrounded by laundry) it seems impossible to ever be so blithe.
So I will continue to create my little butterflies and maybe if I work hard enough and long enough, someday I will be an old grandma on a porch and when a butterfly flutters by I will be able to say that I am as carefree as he.
