I talk about patterns a lot. This is a recurring one in my life. Sadly it seems to be happening in Clara's as well. The poor dear fell out of a tree. This is a link to her first break. This and this are posts about the first time as well. I took this photo before school in her nightgown because I knew she would come back with it signed.
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.
