    Butterflies

    Butterflies represent metamorphosis, transformation, and rejuvenation. I love butterflies because for me they represent new begginings. Also, when I watch them they are always flutering around, which makes me happy.

    Beautiful Butterflies

    I remember as a little girl I watched in awe as butterflies would land carefully; going from flower to flower.  Their wings seemed to float aimlessly on the wind.  I don't see many butterflies anymore .

    Is It Even Possible to Not Lov...

    Is it even possible to not love butterflies?  I guess there are people in the world who don't love them--or love them "boiled or fried," like W.C. Fields loved children--but I think they are the physical embodiment of beauty for beauty's sake.

    Chrysalis (kinda Deep)

    i love the concept of the chrysalis-- a small, rather unattractive worm goes away and hides for a while, then breaks free of the prison of its own making, a beautiful new creature.  i think that in that way, butterflies are a wonderful metaphor for our own lives.
