Butterflies always lighten my mood and make my heart beat a little faster. This lovely sachem skipper flitted a bit and then rested for a while.
As I watched him, I wondered what the world looks like to him. I’ve read that butterflies see very differently than we do. Their ability to perceive the ultraviolet spectrum means they see light that we don’t. Interesting…
As I continued wandering, I had a thought…perhaps the butterfly was a reminder that our beautiful planet is graced with more light than we know.
And I find that reassuring in these uncertain times. A wise being once said if you focus on the light, the light will expand and grow.
So perhaps it’s time to be inspired by all that is good and kind and hopeful in our world. And then watch the light expand and grow.
I like that plan…
