These are my musings and observations on my daily life, loves and the laughter that are all a part of my experience of living now in the shires of England.

Float like a butterfly

The butterfly in a field full of flowers alights on the normal species and suck up the familiar nectar. Then they fly off to the next similar plant. The butterfly is happy and satisfied with the nectar it gets and usually it remains this way. However, children are like butterflies that are blown off course and forced to land on a new type of plant. As they look around at this different environment they are enchanted and all thoughts of the old familiar routine disappear from their minds.

Reaching out and testing the new nectar proves that other things hold as much interest and promise as the last experience did. Like their winged counterparts children grow up and they float from one attraction to another. Whenever a child gets a new focus they remain fiercely loyal to it ... until a fresh wind blows then somewhere else.
