Beautiful.

Wow - first of all this is a lovely drawing with sweet words Rachel! Then I thought: What? Flying across continents? A butterfly? I googled to learn more, and it is true, butterflies can fly across continents and oceans and the Monarch Butterfly for example can fly up to 130km (!!!) a day! Unbelievable!
What does it mean? Great strength to the humble and small too! :-)
Thank you for teaching us all kind of things Rachel, and making us think about many more! :-)

Diane said...

Amazing fact that I didn't know either--which tells me even more why I LOVE butterflies--thank you for your meaningful art!

What a wonderful reminder that something so small and humble can also be incredibly strong. Your artwork is eye-opening and full of good energy.

Jennifer Richardson said...

oh rachel.
sudden sweet tears
on sipping the beauty
from these words
and from your own
gossamer wings.
Altogether beautiful.
Love and thanks,
Jennifer
