Veni Vidi Vici…

Many people don’t understand why my blog is named after a butterfly. I argue that a butterfly has the power to add colour to one’s day but, sadly, lasts such a short period of time. The same can be said about this blog. Every few days, I prepare a new piece of writing in its own cocoon. When it’s released into the world, it has the ability to touch, inspire or motivate.
Also, there is a butterfly named Vanessa and they seem to follow me around whenever I’m sitting in the garden writing or painting.

These were some of the best butterfly quotes I could find:

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.  ~Rabindranath Tagore

“May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.”
~Irish Blessing

“If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.  ~Author UnknownThe caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity.”  ~Attributed to George Carlin

“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly”.  ~Richard Bach

“But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.”
~Robert Frost, “Blue-Butterfly Day” 

My wings were clipped by sadness or pain. But, the experience added colour and light to them…
May these words bring you light, love and wisdom…
