"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

paradise in my mind

"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the flower leaves
on the heel of the one who
crushed it."

--Mark Twain

in my presence...
the greens are blushing,
the rocks are dancing,
the waters are singing,
the trees are smiling.

in my silence...
the crickets are whispering,
the birds are whistling,
the bees are humming,
the butterflies are talking.

in my patch under the sky...
the wildflowers are breathing,
the wind is cheering,
the earth is rejoicing,
a star is flying!

in my universe...
i am not on my own,
i am not alone,
i've found my Eden,
i'm close to home.
