"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."

Allons voir un coucher de soleil..."

thank God for glorious sunsets! i cannot help but always feel like a child so filled with glee every time i see carpets (sometimes bursts!) of warm colors adorning the sky as sunlight does its spectacular battle against darkness when day turns to night.
