    True Beauty

    Butterflies offer me a sense of peace whenever I see one fluttering by. They look so delicate, so fragile. I would never dare try to reach out and touch one in fear of ruining the serenity. Their colors are so gorgeous. For a little thing, they bring so much beauty to the world.

    Lately...

    I have been obsessing over butterflies and one was flying around the moving truck as my roommate and my friend were loading it today. I hope that is a sign of a good journey!
