Because we had an early Christmas for the actual Christmas we got up and went for a walk in Cherry Springs. We saw tracks for deer, rabbit, dog, and maybe others, I can't be sure. The frost was lovely. The children's endurance was poor but I expected it and came prepared. We warmed up with more hot chocolate, panatone, and clementines. I was glad it was a sunny morning.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
