I love butterflies ...visited the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, 
small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. 
And everyone deserves a little sunshine.

For in the true nature of things...

For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider,
every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
Denn in der wahren Natur der Dinge, können wir zu Recht die Auffassung vertreten,
dass jeder grüne Baum, viel herrlicher ist, als wenn er aus Gold und Silber wäre.

- Martin Luther

Autumn at Laurel Creek - leaves are falling

One year has gone by...
I sit quietly, listening to the falling leaves - 
I am lonely - 
The past is fading, things are no longer remembered -
My sleeve is wet with tears.
