nurture nature, like a butterfly

Fun With Words

So, I woke up this morning and realized that I didn’t have anything for today 🙁

It’s been a really busy weekend for me, but that’s no excuse… anyway, I pulled up some pictures from the past and found these butterflies – and going with it! There has been so much change lately, it seems appropriate!

Hope you enjoy!

Become the change
(The World Encyclopedia of Butterflies and Moths)

How did butterflies get there names? no one knows for sure exactly how butterflies got their name… one theory is, a long time ago, butterflies were thought to be witches and would steal milk and butter. Our English word for butterfly comes from the Old English word “buterfleoge”.

it will take care of you

some strange facts:

crescent wings
open and close
with minty delight
(In the time of the Butterfly by Julia Alvarez)

many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls… In Christianity, the butterfly is seen a symbol of resurrection; represents endurance, change, ope and life around the world. They also represent transformation, joy, lightness, transition, grace, and eloquence

The butterfly effect: “in chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state” (wikipedia)
