Entry Description

Perhaps there is no more complicated creature than the butterfly, given its journey in life. Possessing the ability to grow and change, their start is a place unrecognizable at the end of their transformation. Time moves forward, loved ones fade away, who I am changes, and some of the most important events occur within – quietly in small and hidden worlds.
