The Butterfly

A graduation of age yesterday. An advancement. A birthday. As I waited for my friend to return from placing our lunch order, and I looked out over the water, I had such a sense of peace and oneness with this world, a feeling I don’t remember having before. I felt I was all part of this; I was in it and it was in me. Completely enveloped. Maybe it was because it has been so long that I have been in a pandemic cocoon, shut away from the world, that this surged into my soul that has been so parched. And now the butterfly pushes out, transformed. Or maybe, I thought, this is how 74 feels.

    This is a very impressively worded response to your enjoyment of your experience of the moment. Sounds like a nice feeling to have had.

  3. The past year or so has indeed been strange… I know some who have struggled, but also many who with a forced slow down in life, have found peace and so much in their immediate surroundings that they once took for granted. We love where we are in middle England, lovely countryside…. but boy, do we miss the sea, the dunes, the changing tides. As for age, I know I am a year older but it has felt as if time did stand still….. anyway who’s counting 😄

    I hope it’s how 74 feels, because that’s the direction I’m heading. I love those photos. Especially the first one, with the boats.
